come on, skinny lines

I’ve made another small modification to Monza Mod. The post titles and excerpts on archive pages were very skinny in Monza, which made even a moderately not-short title split across two lines and generally looked a bit gangly.

Monza excerpt padding
Monza uses all the padding

I’ve found the section of css that set those styles:

.post .entry-header, .post .entry-content, .post .entry-more {
    text-align: center;
    padding-left: 200px;
    padding-right: 200px;

Two hundred pixels on either side of a column that’s got a sidebar next to it taking up space, anyway, is quite a bit. I’ve reduced it in Monza Mod’s style.css:

.post .entry-header, .post .entry-content, .post .entry-more {
    padding-left: 100px;
    padding-right: 100px;

And I like the result:

You can have it all: elbow room and an unbroken title

I’ve tweaked the pre text style as well – it was large and bold. I haven’t changed the code style just yet, but it sure is pink.
