MSDN has just recently revamped its entire website. At first glance it looks pretty plain. But there is one key use for this almost-plain website style ---- userstyles!! Yes, I think the re-styling of websites has finally hit the minds of the website developers. MSDN's new site is VERY stylish-friendly... almost everything seems to be done with CSS and is very easy to change. This first "test" submission I slapped together is midnight blue, as with all my themes its easier on the eyes.

Proper code fonts in MSDN
Removes ugly "Propose better translation" ("Предложите более удачный вариант перевода") popup from MSDN pages.
After switching to the low-bandwidth version of MSDN, printing the thing has these afwul black bands at the side, and the space reserved on the left hand side for the context and menu is wasted on every single page. This style removes that, so that printing an article only prints the useful stuff.
Bigger and cleaner layout for MSDN Blogs
The new MSDN Library looks a lot better than the previous one. I just felt urged to tweak some things even more. You may disagree with my changes, and if so, comment this style. Purpose is to make t more readable and make sections more clear. Changes: 16. mars 2007: * Added a couple !important -statements to make sure it overrides styles correctly.
