New Blog Design

My blog has a new template. Some key design features are as follows:
  • Typography as UI.
  • Proper leading (line height) increases readability. It is current set at 1.5em.
  • Correct measure. Mine is about 80 characters per line.
  • Completely elastic design (which ensures a consistent measure). Used em for all units (but I'm fairly sure Blogger meddles with things and throws in a couple px's).
  • Utilized an off-white text background to aid readability for people with low-vision.
  • Made the background in Paint. Yes, really. Not really a design feature, I know.
That's about all I want to say. Goodnight.
