If you look up you’ll notice I made a small update to the way dates are presented in my headings. It’s not a big change, but I wanted to include the year without increasing the height of the date stamp.
Rotating text to the rescue! Following Jonathan Snook’s article it was easy to implement the few lines of CSS necessary to make this adjustment.
I realize that I should replace these hacks with conditional comments (should I?), but for now they’ll suffice. Also, with a little more research it looks like this IE7/8 hack would have been more elegant.
