WordPress Sandbox Theme Problems [en]

[fr] Deux problèmes avec Sandbox: les menus déroulants qui se déroulent décalés sur la droite dans IE, et l'absence de feuille de style pour l'impression. Toute aide bienvenue.

As you might have seen, [Sandbox](http://www.plaintxt.org/themes/sandbox/) is now [my theme of choice for WordPress](http://climbtothestars.org/tags/sandbox/). [Diurnal](http://www.sndbx.org/results/designs/diurnal/), here on CTTS, is built upon Sandbox, and I’m using it with a client to build a new design from scratch. It’s a nice base to work from, in a [CSS Zen Garden](http://www.csszengarden.com/) way.

However, there are problems. Here are two I’m stuck with on my client site. I posted them to the [Sandbox forums](http://www.sndbx.org/forums/), but I thought I’d mention them here in case one of you smart readers had an answer.

1. [No print stylesheet?](http://www.sndbx.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=221): does anybody have a print stylesheet handy for use with Sandbox? If I can avoid writing one from scratch…
2. [Broken drop-down menus in IE](http://www.sndbx.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=220): I’m far from a drop-down menu specialist, so I’m not sure where to start to fix the IE wonkiness I’ve noticed. The menus in IE do not drop right below the parent menu as [shown here](http://flickr.com/photos/bunny/1998710028/), but overlap on the neighbouring menu item on the right.

Thanks for any help or pointers you can bring me.

I found some nice bunnywabbit illustrations, by Bruno Bellamy. Here they are!

Pretty pretty. Bruno Bellamy not only draws pretty girls, he even has a couple of bunnywabbit ones.

As Bellamy has a sensible reproduction policy for somebody who publishes his art on the web, I’m happy to show you the two bunnies which caught my attention.

This first one is just a sketch, but I really like the hair and the carrot. The next one is in colour — maybe I should consider changing my pink layout to blue?

Bellamy allows personal website owners to reproduce a few of his pictures on their sites, under certain conditions. He has now added a new one: he does not want his pictures used on sites which brag “optimised for Internet Explorer”

Well… what did you think a bunnywabbit looked like?

Thanks to Tristan for pointing out this artist to me!
