Attempts to recreate the original colour scheme of The Penny Arcade report on their 2.0 site.

More info

* Fixed the color of the caption box


* Added to the url list


* Fixed the background of the comment count bubbles.


* Pager background in comment block


* Added some !important tags to all the colors, as that seems to be what was needed to make it work in Firefox.


* Reverted the copy font to Helv/Arial/Verd until the PAR font gets fixed.


* Missed the "Buy this game" box from #article


* Missed a background color in #article


* Colour change on nav entries. Made them brighter.


This is an initial first go. There are still some things missing, and a couple of the colours are protected with !important on their base CSS, but it's a start. There are also images used in the layout that I lack the ability to change.

The sprite sheet with their old logo is still online, so I replaced the logo in the header with that. Should work as long as that file doesn't go anywhere.

I simply went back and used their old colour palette from the Wayback Machine. There are probably things that aren't perfect, especially given that the old CSS for the comments section isn't available, but it's definitely a start.

You should to add comment and rate the style.
