They should be exactly the same. A url is more appropriate here. http://votillity.com Go here and click the button in the top left that say's "classic". then go here http://ninefiveseven.99k.org. and click that same button as many times as you want. you'll notice that those tiny buttons to the right of the list on the left change colors for my subdomain but not my domain.
Does anybody know why this is?
