New Layout

I was wondering if I should use the new layout for the anime watch list on my friendster and myspace profiles. (The ones on my blogs will remain due to the fact that there are links and converting it to the new ones would be kind of confusing due to the nature of the long code (especially non-ascii text, which converts several characters like %A6 just to form 1 character) like of the URL of the link.)

Old layout:
Anime watch list:
Hayate the Combat Butler (Episode 16 of 52)
Darker than Black (Episode 15 of 25)
Lucky Star (Episode 14 of 24)
Bleach (Episode 100)
Dojin Work (Episode 2 of 12)
School Days (Episode 2 of 12)
CODE-E (Episode 2 of 12)
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai (Episode 2 of 24)
Sky girls (Episode 2 of 26)
Moe-tan (Episode 1)

New layout:
Anime watch list:
Episode 1: Moe-tan
Episode 2: Dojin Work, School Days, CODE-E, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, Sky girls
Episode 14: Lucky Star
Episode 15: Darker than Black
Episode 16: Hayate the Combat Butler
Episode 100: Bleach

As you can see, the new layout looks neater but not possible to show the total episodes (if known) there. Also, as you can see, there are many episodes that are currently at episode 2 (summer 2007 anime). That means more coding is needed to type the japanese version (due to the nature of the system not supported; with the exception of MySpace Japan which is selectable when signing up. However, if you already have signed up prior to its introduction of that version (most likely the US version) and just select it via that international option, inputing non-ascii text would result in being converted to ?'s) and might go over to the next line. Also, there might be a need to resize the text itself.

In case you are curious what it might look like, here is the text version of the japanese version:
