It's even IE 9, so that surprised me. Anyway, if you view http://www.ethoma.com/testhome.php on Firefox/Chrome you can see the general look I am going for.
For some reason a few features are missing on IE and Opera:
- The gray space in between the post "islands" is white, for reasons beyond me.
- The shadows on the islands are missing (and if you view my CSS in Firebug, you can see that I was very mindful of cross-browser issues!).
- the rounded corners are missing. I know this is CSS3, but shouldn't there be support, since I have modern browsers.
Also, if it turns out these issues (specifically the rounded corners) are impossible without more effort than just CSS, can you link me an article on doing it the hard way please?
The biggest thing though is that I first take care of that stupid white space in between islands.
Thanks for any answers/views!
(I am sorry if anyone feels this post isn't up to stackoverflow quality, but I did my best -- I am rather alarmed that the gray space issue popped up)
