So I changed everything around. Again. Like I say, I get bored with site designs every six months or so and the underlying code of Things Of Interest needed fixing up substantially, so I thought I might as well change what the site looks like at the same time. This is a pretty sketchy and uninspiring minimalist design at the moment since I am not very good at colour schemes and "vision" in this kind of area, but at least it's no longer white text on a blue background. Also I've moved to a nice serif typeface which I think will make the fiction more readable.
The biggest problem I have had with this site is width. I really wanted to stick to a relatively narrow fixed width, because very wide paragraphs are harder to read. But it turns out I have various pages with very wide tables which don't take kindly to being compressed. It's only a minor headache but it is a slight headache, nevertheless.
