Playing around with a new look for the site definitely makes clear the value of Cascading Style Sheets. With the help of some of Jesse Ruderman’s excellent web development bookmarklets like Edit Styles and Ancestors, you can find a site you like, grab (steal) some of the styles, and painlessly put them in place on your own site. Another good resource is the EditCSS plugin for Firefox, but it stopped working (at least for now) in Firefox 1.0. In fact, I just noticed that EditCSS is based on Ruderman’s bookmarklet. What an incestuous place the web is!
