EDIT - it seems to work here, at least it links through to the lottery awards page. Too early to vote yet anyway, but I would like to have it working and in an obvious spot from 31st May to 20th June, when the voting will be live.
EDIT - done! I didn't spot the 'add by html' button (or something like that) in the 'add gadget' menu on Blogger. I tend to assume I'm going to have to scrape together everything I can remember about writing html code every time I want to change something on the blog, but it is usually much easier than that. :-)
