@appropedia @sighmon My general recommendation is to use CSS margins rather than hspace or vspace. Separation of content and presentation.

A comforting day of crafts around the wood stove and cooking mole poblano with a 5-year old who’s become quite a storyteller. For hours …

@appropedia Using Firebug, I see that the CSS for img includes margin and padding of 0. I believe that cancels hpsace http://twurl.nl/wod1n8

@cmduke Consider this: whether updates break plug-ins. IMHO, WordPress has higher sustainability than Drupal.

@appropedia @bjorg The thing I like is the tagging and drill-down architecture. Most wikis are so flat.

The Twitter curve. 1. Follow. 2. Read. Too many (10-20) borning tweets: unfollow. No Tweets: leave alone. Occasional (5-10 a day): evaluate.
