I revamped my blog template/style

I totally trashed my old Roller template and went with a simpler scheme. With the experience I got from doing the web sites for Connectathon.org, BlitzUnited.org, and 97Red.com, it was pretty simple.

The hardest issue was getting the Categories to be formatted. I wanted them to have better class names, but in the end I looked in the resulting html file and just changed my style file to match.

I wish I knew how to see other's custom templates. It is pretty easy to see any style files they develop, but I'm afraid that the templates are within a database.

I'm done for now. Oh, and I'd like to figure out why the colors I used for the site banner with Gimp are coming out different than the background color I set. This is pretty consistent across browsers. The only other thing I see is the custom borders for the content looks washed in Safari.
