EDIT: Finally fixed most issues; please notify me if you see other discrepancies with the code and all.
Also, dA was being weird on me and didn't want to accept the updated file. :/ So I had to re-upload this.

:star: Basic Information :star:

This is a newer version of my Colorful Paint Splat Journal Skin. The basic look is still the same, but I changed most of the text colors (leaving only the link hover and journal title and date colors the same), although most changes should be subtle.

The biggest addition to this journal skin is a div for scroll boxes.

You may add a box with a scrollbar to your journal by using the code <*div class="scrollingbox">your text here<*/div> without the asterisk in the div tags.

:star: Why "Dual"? :star:

I tried to make it cross-compatible, in such a way that it would display well in both IE and Firefox. How was this possible? Thanks to =DragonX141's "The Complete CSS Tutorial", I created a slightly different text layout for IE and Firefox. (The only difference is the alignment, haha.) Try viewing a journal using this skin and you'll see that there is a difference with the way the elements in the journal are aligned.

:star: Changes from Colorful Paint Splat Skin v.0.2 :star:

:bulletpink: More readable text colors
:bulletred: A div for scroll boxes
:bulletorange: A different layout for Internet Explorer and Firefox in one skin.
:bulletyellow: Used *.png file format for most of the journal images.

:bug: Known Issues :bug:

:bulletred: Cursors only work in Firefox. (this is something I can't fix, sorry.)
:bulletgreen: Scrollbox div background doesn't stay in place in Internet Explorer (fixing)

:bug: HISTORY (including previous versions)

0.4/Dual : This version, hopefully the last among the version 0's. :p
0.3 : Changed most light colors to dark ones, added a div for scrollboxes, failed predecessor of this version.
0.2 : Colorful Paint Splat Skin
0.1 : Changed title color to dark green and date and time placeholder color to light green, and removed footer.
0.0 : Initial release.

I hope you guys enjoy this skin! Comments and CRITIQUES are very much appreciated! :meow:

This is so good! :D But I can't make the scrolling box appear. Where are you supposed to add the <divclass=”scrollingbox”>(text) code? In the "skin CSS" box or the "Content" box? thx
