The material on this Web site is prepared on an Apple Macintosh running Mac OS X using BBEdit from Bare Bones Software for HTML coding, syntax and link checking, and formatting. The “framework” used to build the static files on this site is Bootstrap3. Pages are proofed and massaged in Safari, with 16-point Noto Sans as the default font for body copy. Links and syntax are double-checked with Integrity. Dynamic pages from the “Clippings” section are handled using WordPress. Sample pages and CSS files are occasionally run through the W3C validators to ensure standards compliance.
In designing and producing this site, we're attempting to adhere to web standards such as HTML5 and CSS3. Because many browsers are not standards-compliant, this may mean that some pages do not display as intended for some of our visitors. Despite the inconvenience this may cause those visitors, we have taken this path because part of our mission is to use and promulgate standards. If you have problems, please contact us, and/or consider using a standards-observant browser.
