thank you michelle, eric & andy for pointing it out.
i finally tracked down what was wrong, and:
it wasn’t my code, it was blogger’s fault.
that’s frustrating to find, but good to know.
anyway, it’s fixed now.
and, for those of you who only visit this site on macs or in firefox, you have no clue what i’m talking about. 🙂
that’s OK, just ignore it.
i think i’m going to switch to wordpress soon…
