Nicely modded; I like the colors. (I'd be glad to include this as a variant if/when I upload my next version of Tutorial - e-mail me if you're interested.)

Great work, I love it :D

I love it. It's my new look.

Two things though -
1) It ignores my choice of font; it claims I can set my font but it ignores what I choose (although it does properly handle the font for incoming messages)

2) I wanna be the red duck!!!

Man... I'm loving this messageview style. But there's one thing I can't seem to fix on my own: the fact that very long names totally mess up the style. It just can't handle them, and so the little box with the contact's name grows huge, overlapping on top of the timestamp and right on top of the first line of their message.

I tried looking into it (been at it for about an hour), but I'm not too big on css and can't find a way to make everything work properly whenever I'm chatting away with someone who's nick is a paragraph long. :-/

Here's an example of what I mean...

with a short name, eveything's just beautiful!!

with a long name, though... everything just goes to sh!t

Hope this helps to explain my problem... and that someone can offer a fix. I have a lot of contacts that enjoy using really long names, and I'm not about to ask them to please shorten their screennames just to facilitate my messageview style.

well, i'm glad you like the message view. i haven't looked at it in a long time, but i'll take a look to see if i can come up with a fix for the problems mentioned.

I didn't expect to get such a quick response... I truly appreciate it, kev (if I may call you that). I'll check here often... see what you come up with. Thanks!!

Kevin, any chance of an alternating option in the future?
