The Best Laid Plans Succumb to Poor Programming

Okay, I give up. A few days ago, I declared that The Boxer was the prettiest of the LJ page styles. I still think that's true, but it turns out to be painfully buggy. As cellio pointed out, it has a hardcoded width, and you can't use a percentage of the window width. You can't user the "nc=" link feature successfully because of the way the stylesheet is constructed. It doesn't use pics quite right -- when I view someone's entry in comment mode, their main userpic shows up instead of the entry userpic. And today, for reasons I'm not quite sure of (possibly one of the background parameters I set?), it is *sucking* Mozilla's CPU. Scrolling the page is very slow, and chews the CPU like nobody's business; strangely, this problem seems to be worse the more tabs I have open. (Which makes little sense, but concerns me.)

So be it. I'm going to switch to Tabular Indent: slightly more boring, but it appears to work better. At least, until I get fed up enough to write my own style...
