CSS and round corners: Borders with curves

Rounded corner tables are very much in style these days and honestly, I love (and also use) them a lot. You'll find an excellent description as to how to create them at WebCredible - CSS and round corners: Borders with curves.

Currently I'm doing it by splitting the table into 3 rows and place a picture with the upper left and right corners and the top part of the border together in one picture at the top and repeat the same at the bottom. The part in between is colored the same as the top and bottom border pics. However, the mini-genious about the solution in the linked article is that in that way the table border will always automatically follow the width of the text within the table.

Embed music with Apple navigation bar

I was trying to add a very simple music player onto one the blogs I was developping. Normally you're supposed to use the player that the visitor has installed on their computer, but to my opinion, there's a nicer and cleaner way: Apple QuickTime.

Here's a simple code that you can embed into your website

PsycHo - Classic Blogger Template

Did you ever think about to give your blog a very specific look but just could not find the right one among Blogger's preset ones? You don't have to worry anymore, as Aideen made it possible for you by developping PsycHo: Free Template Generator. As soon as you setup the template the way you want to, with a little html knowledge, you can do additional modifications to it and paste it into Blogger.

To change your Blogger blog so that you can add your self-developped html or template, go to 'Customize' option, then chose 'Layout' -> 'Edit HTML'. On the very bottom of this page, you'll find the option 'Revert to Classic Template'. Click on this and then click 'OK' at the warning message. Now you can add your code into the big text box. Note: your 'Layout' menu will change into 'Template'.
