I have two small wishes/questions. One of them is something that's been bugging me for a while, and the other is something I've always wanted to do.

1) Does anyone know what I'm supposed to do to my journal layout code (I'm using S2 Opal) to keep it from messing up my entire friends page when someone makes a phone post?

2) How on EARTH do you french braid hair? This is something that's bugged me forever. I can braid hair just fine, but when it comes to a french braid, I'm lost. I'd like to be able to do it to my own hair, but tips of any kind are welcome.

Thanks in advance for any help. :)

So as of recent I've felt uninspired and whinny and I am planning on changing this. I've started a blog to post random creative things that inspire or make me laugh. My plea for help to you folks is for some tips on how to spruce up my layout from the restrictive Blogger template.

I've searched the web for sample free templates but just felt they weren't really what I was looking for. (As in I can do without butterflies and Paris Hilton on my side bar).

In case anyone is interested it's called What can I say that hasn't been said (and I love comments). The title of my first post is going to be "When did I become too ugly for the internet?: My comments on Myspace.com". (All this and more after stupid exams of course).

Any blogger nerds or HTML freaks out there that can point me in the right direction?

i've been playing around with websites for several years now, and feel like i can do what i want to (which is to say, nothing fancy) with HTML. lately most of the updates i've made to my website have been focused on having clean and valid HTML, and also starting to separate content and presentation by using CSS.

i've been using the W3C's HTML validator at validator.w3.org and their CSS validator at jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator, and i used this W3C page to learn really basic CSS, but i'm looking for something a bit more in-depth now. does anyone have any favorite CSS-tutorials/websites/books?

ideally, i want something that focuses on the logic of CSS and keeps things like accessibility and cross-browser usability in mind. i want to understand what i'm doing and why i'm doing it; i want something that focuses on teaching the underlying structures and concepts rather than something that focuses on a certain end result/having a site look a certain way.

cherokeelovebat Is helping me with trying to put my "vision" for this community into words... I'm struggling...
But, in the meantime.
I have a question. How exactly does one go about doing a cartwheel? I've wanted to do one my entire life, is there anything I can do besides just hurtling myself in the general direction of the ground and hoping I don't dent myself to badly? Is there a process?
