When I glanced at the site code I saw XHTML and Transitional and my mind
must have filled in 1.0 between them.

There's no such thing as XHTML 1.1 Transitional, so the doctype is bogus
to start with,.
Then there's the whole mess with using 1.1 with the wrong content-type

A few initial thoughts:
(a) The contrast between the text and the background is waaay too low.
(b) Specify the text in '%' ....... 100% for the body of the text.
Specifying it in px means that IE users can't increase the size of the
text to something readable without going into 'accessibility mode'.
(c) You could, perhaps, put in a more useful <title></title>
(d) The site needs a *lot* more use of headings ( <h1><H2><h3><h4>,
etc.) to help users of assistive technology (screen readers, etc.) to
navigate the site more easily.
(e) mark up any lists in the HTML as 'lists'
(f) Put an 'invisible' note at the start of the page to the effect that
'all blog comments open in a new window'. Users of AT who miss the audio
queue that a new window is opening may well get a little confused
(g) Sounds OK .. and with a few changes, should look OK too.
Just a few thoughts.
