bret just brought to my attention that the site was looking totally out of whack in safari. i was confused, because even though i am using camino as my default browser, i would expect them to display the page similarly. after some time staring at the main page template that i had done some work on last night, wondering what the hell i had messed up, i finally looked at the page again and realized that everything after the second entry was crap. a quick look at that one revealed an open tag. ok, back to normal.
