nicely done, Bob! Using css to control what you want to show and how to show the content on various device sizes is very cool! Keep it up!

@ Peter - Thanks Peter! CSS3 makes this type of work so simple! Can you imagine the amount of JavaScript it would have taken to do this just a few years ago? <div>&nbsp;</div> I'm very thankful for the advances!

@Bob (thanks for nice words about blog...definately a work-in-progress though... have decided to invest a lot more effort on developing content as i'm about to go to a new job) hope you don't mind if i ask a few questions..... (a) the theme seems to have a small issue in that i think the default sort order should be most recent first, but I can't seem to find how to set it - so my question is, who "owns" the built-in minimal template ? (b) Could you suggest any freeware tools to develop header images ? I don't want to spend a lot of time on them, but it would be nice if they didn't looked hacked together :-)

@ John.Kelly - I assume you are talking about the sort order of comments? I agree. <div>&nbsp;</div> I'm the un-official owner of the Minimal theme... which I hacked together as part of a larger re-design project going on here at developerWorks. I have been using the theme as a testing vehicle to assist in formulating design concepts. <div>&nbsp;</div> Due to lots of requests, I made the theme available to all the bloggers here at developerWorks. If you run across issues, bugs, or have enhancements and feature suggestions, I'm the right guy to ask! <div>&nbsp;</div> I'm very fortunate to have an in house designer who rocks at graphics... so I was able to have my lead space image created by a pro, but for the other images I use in my blog posts, I use, which is an open source offering similar to Photoshop. <div>&nbsp;</div> Again, thanks for blogging on developerWorks!!!

@ bobleah - hey bob - a couple of points... <div>&nbsp;</div> (a) your in house designer does, in fact, rock <br /> (b) in fact i was talking about the blog order, but have just got to the bottom of that... i'd book marked it some time ago and hadn't noiced the url was;sortby=3&amp;lang=en :-) <br /> (c) thanks for the link to - yet another toy to fill the cold winter evenings with! <div>&nbsp;</div> cheers <br /> John

@ John.Kelly - Glad you solved the sort mystery. I'm still going to look at changing the sort order for blog comments, I like the idea of showing the newest comment first. <div>&nbsp;</div> BTW, I will pass on to Ami you compliments on her skills!!!

Hi Bob. <br /> Thanks for this fantastic minimal theme. I have not explored all the possibilities yet, but I like very much what I have seen so far. I adopted your theme on my blog ( and I got a minor issue I don't understand. Each time I post something, the abstract on the main blog page starts with "&amp;amp;amp;lt;!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } --&amp;amp;amp;gt;" <br /> I was able to get rid of it once, but I don't know how :-) Any clue?

@ jl.marechaux - The blog post in question has an odd style embedded into it: <div>&nbsp;</div> You can see this style by editing the post, and clicking the -h- button on the editor toolbar. I suspect this HTML was embedded at the time you authored the post. This typically happens when blog authors cut &amp; paste their entry from another application, such as Word, or are using a non-supported browser, or even possibly a blog client. <div>&nbsp;</div> It is simple enough to fix, just edit the post, switch to HTML mode, and delete the offending style. If you have any problems, just let me know....
