    I can write any CSS you need for the blog.

    I would go with a transparent-ish white box with a grey border so as to still see the background picture but keep the text readable. You could probably keep the ame font colour too.

    Cool. So can you up the CSS here? imo I tried with the template. Turns out that it actually covered everything rather than just the post text. :(

    So how do you need the CSS? A file, text to copy/paste?

    You can just send me via email the code. For now, I only need the text box for my posts and the navigation bar to the right. As for the intro text, it will be really tricky since it's just above the posts. btw, what's your take on whether I should include the post title under the text box as well?

    What do you mean by that? Have the post title in the box that the post is in?

    This sounds like the best idea to me, just to make the text stand out a bit more. At the moment it's just a bit hard to read.

    Well, more like a box each for the title and post itself. Dunno if that can be visually feasible for the gadget titles as well. :S
    @Crouton: Well I tried DL's suggestion to avoid red/blue hues, but I dunno how the thing panned out since the green I used so far looks a bit... >.<

    I'll give it a try. The HTML is so horrible that I might be able to do it easily, but I'll feel bad about not destroying the blog software and forcing them into writing something clean and semantic (like Wordpress).

    Tried blog transfer to Wordpress. Epic fail. Post 24hrs and still importing w/o any sings of error. Finally gave up. Suspect it's down to insanely high traffic stats. In fact I should be a fool to think that the stat counter figures=literal number of ppl hitting the site. >.<

    Yeah; I use Ghostery so I don't appear on trackers.

    I'm not sure how you'd go about migrating the blog. Is there some sort of SQL file or something?

    WP utilized an auto data-migration. That's what got me up the wall. I thought it was a screw up first time round. Then when I realized there's no error message, I ended up realizing that my own interpretation of site traffic has gone horribly way off the mark. T_T
