I apologize to those of you reading this post using the Internet Explorer Browser. I'm aware of how badly the page is rendering and there's nothing I can do about it. The code is fine. It's renders perfectly in the Firefox Browser. The problem is with Blogger. And I can't get any help from them. They're busy migrating servers (which isn't going well, so I'm led to believe) and help for "minor" problems like mine doesn't seem to be forth coming. I'd consider switching to a different blog host but that would just be too much work for me to take on right now.
So I'm just going to plug along and hope that Blogger gets it's **** together. With luck my blog will quickly heal itself. How's that for magically thinking?
