Played with a new CSS hack, bottom aligning text inside a div. The only solution I found to this (now documented here) was to use a fixed height div and some absolute positioning on the text, contained in another div. If anyone has better solutions to this problem, I'd love to hear them.

Also recently been playing with center alignment of some things, this is apparently easier said than done, as usual MS have not followed the CSS specification and so the easiest way doesn't work, but with an extra line, it does (hooray!). There's quite a few 'hacks' to center things, I'll document them all when I have time.

In other news, I haven't done bugger all on my python rss aggregation script recently, but hope to pick that up some time in the future.
