Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

CALLING ALL GEEKS: Or just a single one nice enough to take pity on me. Before actually changing template entirely, I tried just making the post cell of the old template white. Since I am conversant in pidgin html at best, I had to look up the code for white and find the part of the template that I guessed controlled the color for that cell. I pasted in the code, saved the template and republished to see how it would look. Same old same old. Which didn't surprise me, given blogspot's publishing lag. But I tried to refresh several times and still no change. So I went to more drastic measures and used the "change template" function. Went through the rigmarole of transferring my blogroll etc. to the new template. Everything seems fine. Now I even have archives for October and November, something that had been missing for some inexplicable reason. But when I click on one of those archives, Doh! Turns out that my white cell change took effect just in time to be entombed in the archives, which now appear to have gaps in the text where the links are. Because, stupid me, I forgot that the links were white too. (So you can see them if you select the text.) Does anyone know how I can change the template for the archived pages?
