LiveJournal appears to have made some global change somewhere in the bowels of S2 that has broken my comments page beyond my ability to figure out what's wrong with it. I'd noticed some anomalous behavior over the past month or two, and then sometime last week it completely blew up. I've managed to find some of the errant HTML that's fouling it up, but not all of it, and I can't determine where in the system it's coming from. Not only that, but the original style I based mine off of doesn't appear to exist on LiveJournal any more (or if it does, I can't find it).
So I guess it's time for a restyle on the LiveJournal side.
I'm thinking about starting with this, and tweaking from there ... but probably not nearly as extensively as my modifications to the previous style, where I moved elements around, installed new chrome, changed code and all kinds of stuff.
(Gaah! It doesn't look as though I can statically link to a preview of a specific style. The preview link displays as "whatever S2 style preview you last looked at", which is less than useful. :p Ah well ... maybe I'll just have to go for it.)
