It's working and nice but i see the stars are in 320 pixels width which is very large making the title unreadable and seem messy. i guess the old style with numbers only was much more effective. it was like 6.0 instead of 6 stars yellow and 4 stars gray.
I have reverted back to numbers - I agree with you - but I found it more fun to code a "star bar" - but you get tired of eyecandy...
So - we're back to numbers and it will stay that way.
