Those cupids (which I can't see) have made a hash of the side blog--half the text invisible, big gaps, text extending below the bottom of the box. Weird! IE 5/Mac.

They don't show up in Opera 5, which makes me like Opera 5 even more. (Then again, the sideblog doesn't even pretend to appear, either.)

I'm very tempted to pay to lose the cupids. If it were a shooting game.. er, using Nerf balls, for instance... that'd work too.

Heh. You get to pay a buck for 5 shots, and if you don't take 'em all out you can pay for 5 more. Store the # of remaining cupids in the cookie and *BAMPF* instant profit! :-)

(especially if you "tweak" the javascript collision detection in your favour)

hijinx: i think they're both intentional. the cupids might be coded only to show on ie5/ns6, and matt states the browser limitations for the sidblog here.

Yep, true. Opera's DHTML support is a subset of the standards, it seems, and I can't say I blame Matt for not implementing it.
