Aisle One Style

Designer Antonio Carusone offers a free style package for Brent Simmon’s Net News Wire. The stylesheet offers lots of finesse — eliminating widows and orphans, standardizing title typography — in a simple package.

Net News Wires uses a clever mechanism of style packages — bundles of resources that can include stylesheets, templates, and attendant resources such as scripts. They're easy to modify; in fact, I modified Carusone’s Aisle One style right away because, while I really like its look, Carusone clearly has a much bigger screen than I. His design uses lots of white space. I like it. It’s got class. But, honey, I can’t afford that much screen real estate.

Hint: close and reopen Net News Wire to load your modified style sheet.
