h2. Blogspot Layout

Google Blogspot has nice ways of presenting "pieces of info" in different layouts.
Eg go to [http://borisovcoventry.blogspot.com/] and try:
- Classic, Flipcard, Magazine, Mosaic, Sidebar, Snapshot, Timeslide

In that case the piece of info is a blog post, in our case it's a comment/annotation/discussion...

(Blogspot also has nice templates, eg see [http://www.blogger.com/template-editor.g?blogID=4010125631613458355], but we won't go for such cosmetics in RS3)
