Having non-HTML-skilled contributors input content on a Drupal site seems to often lead to invalid HTML tag soup being input. And even with seasoned coders, a HTML input error happens sometimes, which can be a problem until someone fixes the post.

For quite a long time I'd been wishing this blog had an original theme. Not that I dislike Marvin, but I felt it was time to create my own theme, especially after doing work on adding settings to drupal themes.

Since today was bank holiday for the Assumption day, I decided I'd use it to create a theme after one of my pet peeves: white space on web pages.
