A Slight Change in Style

A slight change in style to the website over the weekend: I not only changed type faces, but I am now having them served using Google’s WebFont API:


@import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tinos);
@import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Maiden+Orange);

I had been serving Yanone Kaffeesatz and Gentium Book from my own setup, but not only does Google save me bandwidth, but it also gives me more choices. (And switching type faces is as easy as changing one of the above lines and then changing the font names elsewhere in the style sheet. (For the body font, this is easy since it appears only once.)

And, finally, for good measure I also changed the active color of the site to the official RGB for loden green:


color: #6D7356;

A new header is coming. I just haven’t finalized the design yet. It is going to be a play on logbook:
