Off Centered

August 25, 2006 @ 7:58 pm | Filed under: Bloggity

So how horrified was I to look at my blog on Elizabeth‘s computer yesterday and see that all the text was showing up centered? Answer: VERY. That is NOT how it looked in MY browser. Or on Alice‘s for that matter.

I scoured my code and found a duplicate center tag that only had one corresponding end tag. Ugh. Anyway, if my entries were showing up centered on YOUR screen and you were wondering whether I thought I was being arty or something, nope, I’m definitely a fan of the old left justify. I don’t think I want to know how many of you were seeing the screwed-up version. Maybe it was just AOL’s browser that didn’t like my code? I hope?

But really, who can fret overmuch about blog woes when there is such delightful company and conversation all around? Yesterday, the kids and I zipped up to Northern Virginia for an overnight with Elizabeth and her gang. It was far too short a visit. Wonderboy’s jaw was on the floor the whole time: all those boys! I hardly saw Jane the whole time; she disappeared with Mary Beth the moment we arrived. Elizabeth is weeks away from giving birth to her eighth baby, but she served up feast after feast like I was royalty. There was even chocolate on my pillow. Is that a good friend, or what?

  1. It sounds delightful!

    I saw the “arty” version yesterday on Firefox, but all looks well today!

  2. I, as well, saw the arty version on my Explorer. All’s well today though. How fun it is to visit with friends especially ones so close as you all seem.

  3. Mine was centered. I didn’t even realize it until I looked this morning and I thought, wow, this is really easy to read today.

  4. I’m waiting for my visit! Maine isn’t nearly as far as California! It’s only, say 7HOURS from New York!
    (I’m saying this after JUST getting back from a 5 hour trip about 15 minutes ago, and I only have 4 kids!)Well, we do have lobsters and rocky coast and lighthouses and mountains…
