    Abbreviating dates with CSS
    Is there a way to abbreviate any of these tags with CSS or even HTML?

    {DayOfWeek} {Month} {DayOfMonth}

    Not that I know of, but would it really be that difficult to type the out?

    I wish, but I don't have control over the date. It's embedded in the code and just appears whenever I post something.

    Also, what's a good way to test a design across different platforms/browsers?

    I imagine you'll need to dive into the PHP in the template document and change the code. Dont recommend it if you dont know what your doing.. Could break the whole thing just by removing a semicolon .

    Cheers,

    Don't worry about different platforms, only browsers matter for the Internet.

    Download and test your website on the following browsers:

    Mozilla Firefox 3
    Safari Web Browser 3.1
    Internet Explorer 7
    Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2
    Opera 9.5
    Google Chrome

    Between them, you'll cover every standard web browser family there is, leaving less than one tenth of a percent blind in the water.

    Internet Explorer and firefox use slightly different syntaxes for HTML and CSS.

    Check the W3Schools CSS reference to see what needs to be chnaged for Firefox.
    It may still work in Internet Explorer, but if it doesn't, you'll need to make two separate style sheets and use JavaScript to load them respectively.

    Speaking of CSS, this is me nitpicking, but how come the following isn't alligned? ...

    Again, it's the difference between the builds of the browsers

    If it's that important to you, you could simply rebuild the page for Firefox

    That was actually a screen shot in Safari.
