Yay, it does work, just been messing about with it. You're right about the styling, it does need some work in that department, especially if you turn the images on.
Not bad if just used as a list though, but in a article it could probably do with splitting into two columns to fill the page. Has potential though.
PHP article system gets a fair amount of use, mainly for site functions etc. In daily use, I wouldn't recommend anyone gives out permissions to use php, or html articles to anyone unless trusted immensely.
