OK, I just started adding basic css definitions to my journal so I can do stuff like table class="quote" etc, since I am a very lazy typist and I know lots of html and so I know these shortcuts exist. And, :: jumps up and down :: I got them working! Well kinda sorta. It turns out that for my friends, when they see my entries on their friend pages, my css of course is not in their layout and therefore not defined and therefore not nearly as spiff looking as I want. And I can't think of any good reason LJ would set things up so that someone else's css def'ns would be imported into a given user's view (can you say security risk) ... or am I wrong?
Note, this isn't MY friends page, I know I could just do something with function FriendsPage::print_custom_head() if that were the issue. And I do note that most if not all of my pages seem to be inheriting the css anyway.
Do I gotta convince all my friends to copy my css code in their styles so they can see it?? :: oh the humanity ::
