Preparation

The Thin Line is its own layout, so you can either choose the ‘no stylesheet’ option from the sandbox skins menu, or you can choose ‘Start from scratch and just use this’ from the edit CSS panel.

Features

The goal of this skin is to leverage the semantic classes of the Sandbox. So for each post, there is a corner label that shows the date using some very attractive fonts not found on most computers. Similar numbering will be shown on pingbacks soon.

Sidebar 2 acts as a footer to the layout, and anything you put in it will be displayed horizontally, rather than vertically.

    Don’t be offended by this as it’s my personal opinion:)… It’s a nice layout and design. But why is it so dark? I can hardly see the text on this background. My readers were telling me (after the fact) they found Regulus hard to read, I don’t know what they’d say if I used this one on them. In terms of layout/design I like it, in terms of usability (being able to read it), I don’t think I could use it.
