you’re looking at the brand new CSS Weekly design. Of course, both website and a newsletter design are updated and greatly improved.
Most attention (and time) has gone into optimizing the look and feel of the newsletter on different email clients with a special focus on Outlook (it’s one of the most popular clients and quite frankly, the old template had a few problems with it).
My dear friend Tomislav Pocedulić was kind enough to donate the base for the new design. I changed, added and removed a few things from it, so please note that everything that looks right is Tomislav’s doing and everything that looks wrong is my undoing. Now please, show him some love: Potzo.net.
As always, any feedback (especially bug reports) is greatly appreciated.
