Internet Explorer viewers of this blog can now see what Firefox viewers have been enjoying for the last year or so…

miki-burning-man-04.jpgThe green bar behind “Lee.org” at the top of the blog wasn’t visible in IE til I fixed a .css file. Actually, the issue was that IE didn’t follow CSS specs, but it’s hardly worth griping about. IE 6 doesn’t see the background image in my CSS file when it reads as such:

background-image: /* url("http://lee.org/blog/images/reason-villege-old-spring-green.jpg");*/
url("http://lee.org/blog/images/reason-villege-old-spring-green-right-justified.jpg");

burning-man-2004-2-155.jpgI suppose it’s because IE sees the text being on 2 lines (there’s a carriage return in there)  as being 2 elements. But I’m not going to spend any more energy figuring it out.

The writing actually phonetically spells my name in Japanese. Logically, it’s an odd collection of thoughts… “Lee” sounds like “Reason”. Then “Son” and “ko” sound like “village” and “old”.

I have to thank Miki Kawabe for the translation. At Burning Man in 2004, we won the Second Annual Semi-authentic Finnish Wife Carrying Event. We won her weight in beer.

Yes, really!
