The CSS on my blog (http://totalticketsystem.com/blog/technical-articles/hackers-guide-to-being-hacked-how-bad-guys-take-control-and-how-to-take-it-back/) breaks the facebook plugin "Facebook Simple Connect" (http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/)

Could someone help me find the offending CSS style that make the Connect with Facebook plugin fail?

It looks like this:
 s
and it should look like this:
 a
Thanks!

The problem is caused by your template not calling the function wp_footer() anywhere, which prevents an important <script> tag from being added to your pages. Add "<?php wp_footer(); ?>" (without the quotes) to the index.php of your tempate on the line before </body>. That should fix your problem.

Glad to be of help, I hope my answer to the second question is as satisfying (it's a bit of a gamble since I've never used this Facebook plugin ;-) ).
