How I use the new "preview template" in PostXING

Thu Oct 28 2004

It starts off (defaults) using something like the following (newlines added for readability):

<head><link rel='stylesheet' href='style.css'></link>
<div id='main'><div class='post'>
<h2><a href='[Post Url]'>[Post Title]</a></h2>
[Post Body]

Basically, I just go to the actual blog (using the 'view blog' button) and view source. The one here is currently using something that I hacked together pretty quickly from a layout that I, ahem, 'borrowed' from Thomas Johansen. It looks like so (again, newlines added):

<link type='text/css' rel='stylesheet' href=''></link>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css" ></HEAD>
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mainTable">
<tr><td class='contentCell'>
<div id='main'> 
<div class='post'>
<div class='news'>
<div class='posttitle'>
<a href='[Post Url]'>[Post Title]</a>
<div class='postcontent'>[Post Body]</div>

This changes the both the Preview Page and the History Explorer from looking like this: 

to looking like this:
