Two days ago I got fed up with Slash not using CSS. Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining - I'm dearly grateful that Slash's src is available as a backend; it's saved me many many hours of coding.
However, it would be *so* much better with CSS.
So, I started converting. Yes, I know pty started doing this recently, and yes, I hate to double up on a project. (pty, just incase, I'm not trying to one up you are anything even remotely close to that).
I just couldn't take it anymore. I had to give it a shot.
I think pty's project and mine differ in that he's going strict, while I'm not.
Anyway, I have made some progress. Infact, I've got to the point where I needed to modify plugin's templates (specifically, the journalhead and Slash::Message's display_prefs; the problem was the userslashboxes on the right hand side. they were tr td'd, I needed to div them so I could throw them to the right in the style sheet).
Take a look at it: http://fry.lottadot.com/. I don't intend to wack this test-site's db over the course of the next week or two, so get an account on it if you want and mess around.
If you're using a newer browser, you can use different style sheets. The "noboxen" has errors. The "coolbreeze" works quite well, but was a 15 minute hack from another site's css file (and yes, the columns are reversed on purpose). Using Konqueror - it's under the view menu, with Moz it's under the view menu too).
If you are at all interested in this, please post and let me know. It would be great to get some feedback. It would be even better to get some *help* with it. And it would be greater still to get some feedback from the OSDN guys as to was I could make this easier for them to possibly use in the future... hint? hint?
