"Technical Stuff"

What's this page for...?

This page contains a little bit of technical information about this site for those who are curious. So, here it goes…

As part of my recent reorganization of the site (October 2006), I spent quite a bit of time working on the new page design you now see. My hope is that this new design will be more user-friendly, particularly with the updated Navigation Menu which appears on every page on the site. This Navigation Menu uses CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), so I no longer need to use frames to display the menu. Besides, this allows me to put in a different menu design and it gives me the ability to change the look and layout of the site much more easily in the future.

The Navigation Menu will appear on the right side of the page if your browser supports style sheets (which will most likely be the case). If your browser does not support style sheets, or if you have style sheets turned off, the menu will appear as a list of links at the top of each page, above the page's main content.

My implementation of the Navigation Menu was based on some tutorials I found recently on CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). If you'd like to learn more about how it works and how I put it together, check out the following links:

As part of the process of redesigning the site, I spent some time testing the new design in several different browsers. Here are the browsers I used for testing:

As best I can tell, the site is usable and accessible in all the browsers I used for testing, regardless of whether CSS is supported or not. Please feel free to contact me if you have any problems with the site.

By the way, the software links that used to be on this page have moved to my new site, "Tony's Scribblings and Such." You'll find them in the "Software" and "Linux" sections.
