Jennifer in random ramblings in the comments of my previous entry pondered how one could get plain old text in their sidebar. Above is the code I used. And, if you scroll to the bottom of my main page it should be in my sidebar below the quote generator.
Is it perfect, techie-sanctioned, code? Most likely not. And, don't even ask for the code to format it in a different font, size, or color. For that kind of info, you can check back here some day, or go ask Shelly. She's graciously offered her to provide help as well.
