assistant blog in plain text format

I've added a link to my Blogger Atom feed to the sidebar (right). I've done this because I've wanted to add a plain text version of the site for some time but have not been able to put aside time to do so. In the meantime, this provides full, plain text entries. It doesn't, at present, have working links, so some of the shorter entries (which link outwards) mightn't make much sense - but I hope the longer posts prove readable and, dare I say it, enjoyable. If anyone has any tips on how to introduce more effective plain text alternative, please let me know.

One thing you can do is simply provide two CSS files: farm what's in your current page into one, and create a copy that has colour, margins, etc. removed). For Mozilla/Firebird, etc., you can specify both - one as an alternate - so that people can switch from one to another using the standard View menu option.

Or how about:

Probably better but I don't have time to evaluate them right now...
