Friends page - notes

Been pondering my friends list style. I've started redoing it, but only made a few minor changes. I'm trying to make it more useful, and trying to think of useful links to add. I really like the things nilesta's done with her pages, but a lot of them aren't useful for me and/or would take too much effort. ;) It's a really cool style but a lot more useful for active members of support and such; a lot of the links I'd never use.

I've never liked my color choices, but I slapped any random crap up there so I'd have something, and it's primary point has been utility - it's designed to be fairly easy to read (low contrast, legible font, etc.), and differentiate (i.e. links vs. text. vs. headings vs. whatever, etc.) and it is. Still, it's ugly, and that kind of annoys me.

It's also mildly fscked up - I took one of the original lj styles and modified it to get this one, and it doesn't quite work right all of the time - sometimes text doesn't line up nicely and such. Need to get rid of some excessive tables and such, too.

Bah. These are mainly notes to myself, just so I don't forget what I was thinking.
