It turned out that I was using instead of to end the italics in some (but not all) of my other widgets, and somehow that coding carried over into widgets lower down the page.
These are the kinds of things that are totally obvious to anyone who’s been doing this more than 30 minutes, but I’m learning the hard way as I go. This morning I spent 2 hours trying to figure out why the colours in my header looked different on different browsers, and why the header wouldn’t load in IE8 at all. Turned out to be settings in Photoshop…. It’s a steep learning curve, but I’m clawing my way to the top!
Thank you for making a gorgeous theme that makes me look like I know what I’m doing, even when it’s totally untrue. 🙂
