Theme Adjustments

Dissatisfied with the default style UMNlib gave me, I decided to do some CSS styling, trying to have some sort of 'theme' attached... ergo the maroon-gold University colours.

The hex code for my "golden" sidebar is #FFFFC4, and it's lighter than what the conventional gold is (perhaps, #FFCC33; taken from an HTML colour wheel), because it's a website background and not a bright banner; albeit, still not quite what I had in mind.

I can also say that it was a lot of fun having to go in and change all the default backgrounds from #FFF (shorthand white) to a nothing so they would inherit the underlying background color... that is to say everything becomes that shade off-gold.

On the bright side, there are the maroon anchor tags (hex: #003366) which don't look too bad. But other than that, I'm pretty thematically-challenged
