    I'm using ur themes, very nice & cool.
    I would like to know 2 things;

    1) The Blog Name seems dark & blend into the background, didn't stand out. How do I make it standout? Like, Brighter Text & Glowing from the background of the Text ?

    2) I was wondering when I'm using FireFox version 3++, using my cursor to select & highlight the Contents didn't appear the Highlighted Text. I tried using Chrome 2 has no problem. Any fixes ?

    I just downloaded this theme but I am having issues with how I would like my posts to display b/c some things I posts are videos or have pics that I would like to display
    You guys have taken care with every detail. Nothing overlooked or rushed. True quality, and I appreciate your work. This is the first theme I haven't had to jump into the code and do my own clean-up. great stuff guys.

    I'm really surprised you guys don't charge for this theme. It surpasses the quality of most paid themes I've seen so far. Great work, keep it up.

    Very nice. Out of countless themes this is one of a handful that I've kept to test with. Again, very nice.

    EOS looks great indeed. I'm translating it to pt_PT and I might send you the .po files if you haven't got them already. I'll be getting back here regularly for some upgrades. I'm counting
    Excellent theme, thank you. I tried many when I first set up my Wordpress site and finally settled on Eos. However, I have fiddled with it quite a bit, changing a number of small things to suit my requirements, so am reluctant to upgrade without knowing what has changed. I cannot find out anywhere. Is there a changelog or something we can look at?
