If it aint broke
I've just spent hours this evening fiddling with the changes to the template and layout. It's claimed it's easier to achieve the layout you want.
It's now all cramped up and difficult to read, no matter what options I try. I'm REALLY SORRY everyone. I've put up a query in blogger help, got one answer so far with I hope the promise of more HTML help... hmm.
(Edit) Oh, and now I see it's reverted to the original ... the Blog Fairy must have been at work!
