Great Geeklet, but is there also one to show the author as you did in that picture?

The bg is a shot I took at Santa Monica in Feb. I added it above. Thank you for the interest!

Great work on this! I had a question, did you put the indentation into it, or is it that way automatically. If you did it, how can it be taken out. Thanks for the help

Hi have the same problem (using 'Italian Quote of the day'). That's really weird: if i save the text in a file and create a geeklets with 'cat textfile' there is no problem, even using the same encoding...
