Hello! This is not a new layout, I've been using it for over a year now and I love it because it's simple and easy to read. Anyway, I hope you like it. :)

- Style: Smooth Sailing
- Account level: Basic, Paid and Plus. For some reason I can't change the ad placement to vertical or between entries and I think this is a constant problem. Keep it in mind if you are a Plus user! (or if you are viewing your journal logged out.)
- Tested on: IE (8 and higher), Firefox, Safari and Chrome.
IMAGES:Please upload the images to your own server. Thanks.
Background pattern: C130
Content background: http://www.mentahelada.net/lj-layouts/layout036/bg-content.png

CHANGING THE HEADER:Easy. Find this part of the code:
background:#000 url(http://www.mentahelada.net/lj-layouts/layout036/header.png) bottom center no-repeat;
border-bottom:1px solid #ccc;
And change the url to your own. The image must be 240px tall (and whatever-you-want wide) to fit the layout without making major changes to the code. If the header's height is different, change the
height:295px;line to fit your needs.
