I do not know what happened to my template. Working on it. If you'd like to offer suggestions or sympathy, I think you can still comment.
UPDATE: If you visited this afternoon, you may have noticed a slight template adjustment... there was none. Apparently the fine folks at blogger templates, from whence my template comes, updated all of their work and housed their templates at a new place. I had no idea they were doing this. After updating the linkages within my template (yeah, like I know how to do that... I guess I do now), all appears to be working again. Whew!
If any of you css wizards want to have a look, please go ahead. I have no idea if I did it right.
