what the #leftmenu li { display : list-item; } in the left column is, it's a really dorky reminder to myself of where I was in my ongoing exploration of CSS via this site.  Oh I know, I could read a book, but it's so much more fun to poke around and see what happens.  (Thank goodness for the back button on my browser though, since yesterday I set it to “display : none” and, of course, none of the list items showed up.  Including the link to the admin interface.  Yes, I could have figured it out, but it gave my heart a big thump when I went to look at the results of that tiny change ;-) And yes, I could also make a note somewhere else, but it was so handy, and hard to forget where I put it!

The problem I'm currently trying to solve is that the base CSS that I'm using (and can't change, although I could use another base CSS, I suppose) has #leftmenu li { display : inline; } specified, which causes the items under blogstats in the left colum to appear one after another rather than on separate lines.  When I set it to block, the items under blogstats look right, but all the list items that are links have a blank line before and after.  So list-item was the next thing I was going to play with. (Heh, as if you really cared ;-)
