Customize Drupal's 'read more' teaser link placement on Drupal 6

Here's a standalone module that provides the handy customization described at You can see it in use on this site.
It offers administrator options (at admin/settings/ed_readmore) to enable / disable the tweak, and control placement of the read more link.
You can tweak your css file to provide greater control over the read more link formatting. For example, I use this to prevent the read more link wrapping when it's at the right margin: { white-space: nowrap; font-weight:bold; font-style:italic;} 


The module is designed to work with Drupal 4.7, Drupal 5, and Drupal 6, running PHP4 or PHP5.
Usage notes
Install ed_readmore.module as usual: create a modules/ed_readmore directory, unpack the files there. Then, enable the ed_readmore module.
Visit the admin/settings/ed_readmore page and configure the options. Be sure to check off the options that enable moving the 'read more' link (these are enabled by default in later versions.)
