Okay. Think that’s done it. Finally figured out a nav bar (above) and a sidebar (right), thanks to this person; pretty sure these elements are consistent across all pages; brought back a server-side include or two, plus naked old guy loitering in the background (left); am very, very glad I’m using MovableType now; figured out how to incorporate MT’s “archive” page, called it “contents,” also brought back “about” page, called it “colophon,” in both cases borrowing from Michael Chabon (thanks for the tip, Eric!).
