Thanks very much for this tutorial :) I've just one question: do you know if it's possible to use different images in different places? E.g. a green man to replace baldyman in my entries, and a blue man to replace him on my friends page. I'm hoping to do this because I'm an IE user, so the little red man I use instead of baldyman shows up with a white background instead of a transparent one. I've remedied this by just colouring the background the colour of my entries, so it looks fine most of the time:

But that means the background then shows up on my friends page:

So I was hoping to be able to use two images - one for my entries and comments, and one for the "leave a comment" page and my friends page. Is it possible?

If you understand CSS Basic Selectors and familiar with HTML structure, you can try.

If you understand CSS Basic Selectors, you can actually define different user info images for different part of your layout (Navigation Strip, Entry Area, Sidebar, etc)

From me: I never use Opal, so I don't know its HTML structure. I need to be familiar with its HTML structure before I can safely say you can do this. From a quick glance, I don't think it's possible for IE users. One style that allows you to do this is Tranquility 2.

Don't want to switch to Firefox? The interface and menu is pretty much the same with IE (that's why I choose to switch to FF instead of Opera ^^;)

Ah, apologies! I missed that sentence, obviously :S I haven't the faintest idea what CSS Basic Selectors even are XD And I'm only familiar with basic HTML. However, I'm planning to poke around with it more during the summer, so now that I know it's at least possible with some browsers I can experiment :D Thanks for your help!

I do actually have Firefox, but I didn't find that it held many advantages over IE, and I'm more familiar with IE, so I just stuck with that :D The attributes thing is definitely a major advantage though, from a layout-y point of view! The rest of my layout looks awful with FF though :/

That's what I thought, but oh boy, I'm currently addicted to it. (Blame it on the thousands of nifty plugin that made life easier for me)

If you're planning to do layouting, it'll be best to switch to IE7 (although, its CSS implementation is still buggy)

Really? Perhaps I need to explore a bit more then. Especially in the plug-in area :D

Thank you kindly for the tip! Can you just download it? (Is it the latest one?)

Hm, yeah, there's this plugin to: select color, stylish (to edit CSS live), update LJ, check emails, download videos from youtube, etc.

IE7 is the latest one and you need to authenticate your Windows first before you can download the software. :P

Wow O.O It does so much! (YouTuuube ♥) Definitely need to do a bit of exploring :D

@_@ I see I need to brush up on my computer knowledge. I've been thinking, "What the heck is that?" far too often in this thread XD But thanks for the tip :D I'll do that, as soon as I've found out what it is XD
