For years, I felt this website’s styling wasn’t exactly, just-the-right-way-right. I occasionally burst into frenzied tinkering with css in frustration. Then I put the blog aside altogether, resolved to learn more about CSS while I kept a local blog on Emacs. I hoped that with a break from publishing and more practice, I would get back to blogging transformed. I thought I’d finally get the power to tweak everything to my heart’s content.
Time gave me another way to appreciate the difficult and arcane art of exacting, fine control over little details.
