Date with Kylie

There is something vaguely offensive about this. A 21-year-old Canterbury student has bet 25 he can convince Kylie Minogue to go out on a date with him in 2004 and William Hill has offered him good odds. The cads!

He said: "100/1 sounds like I would have a good chance. It's nice to think that I have got a much better chance of dating Kylie than winning the lottery." Mr Allen - also a keen rugby player, fencer and horse rider - said the bet was prompted by his experiences in Canterbury, where he is studying law at the University of Kent. He said: "I have a bit of a reputation with some people at my university for being a ladies' man, hence the idea for the bet."

And then... On an unrelated note, can kindly Flea-readers please tell me the MT code that would allow me to put quoted text in boxes? Preferably with a very light-grey fill? I am thinking I would like to more clearly define materials I am quoting than simple italicizing but am not certain how the end result will look at the Flea until I try it.

And then... The new-look text-box is courtesy of the Raging Kraut!

I'll email you something this afternoon on how to do this. Don't want to take up your comment box with lotsa code. (well not that much...)

If it doesn't work, let me know. I'll give you what I did (and a site where you can get the code for colors - though grey would be good for your site!

You like my look, eh?

I'll e-mail you something even though everyone else probably already has.

I just managed that myself. Glad to see others beat me to it. Here's hoping you have a great New Year and 2004!
