Layout on Mars & profile layout  
I liked the BBC’s Life on Mars page, so I turned their layout into an LJ layout. First time I'm using a different font (in the navheader). Should be one that’s on every computer, I hope.

Edit (May 22, 2016): Profile layout edited, because cellpadding & -spacing aren't supported in HTML5.

The ads of a plus account take their color from the Custom Options. If you want to adjust the colors, go to Style and change Page - Background color of the outer table and Entries - Border color of the content and header/footer boxes.

Go to Edit Profile and insert the code into the Bio part.

To copy the code, click in the text area and then press Ctrl+A and Ctrl+C.

You don't have to use the lj-raw tags. With them you can only make line breaks/new paragraphs with <br> and <p>. Without the lj-raw tags you can also create line breaks and new paragraphs just by hitting the enter key.

If you want to change the link color, put a font tag with a different color in your link. Like so:
<a href="URL"><font color="#D86922">LINK TEXT</font></a>
