Page Design Update!

I must admit that our knowledge of web design is stuck somewhere around HTML 3.0. The last time I remember reading on web design was in 1997! However, in light of recent developments that have made webpage design more exciting, and our acquisition of a new domain (info coming soon!), we are hoping to make the design of our pages more user-friendly and generally better looking. Jonathan and I are learning about more advanced web design techniques, including CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), DHTML, XHTML, and other programming. The pages at Ancient-Future.Net and our other pages will be slow and gradual (seeing as how we all have full-time jobs..well...at least part time ones!). This update page will also serve as a place to test different programming AND park some links and resources that we am using.

Update Progress and W3.Org Page Verification Information

This page will continue to be updated with links and resources, and more. As of now, around a third of our pages have been updated, particularly many of the articles. They have been programmed into XHTML, and are verified through w3.org. Note: OUR PROGRAMMING CONFORMS TO XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2.1 STANDARDS if we have placed the appropriate graphic on one of our pages. However, the links from Amazon.com and the Stat Counting code placed on our pages by Yahoo may not. The designs have been tested on IE 6.0, Mozilla 1.6, and usually on Safari 1.0. Our next endeavor is to radically overhaul the Index and other gateway pages. Thank you for your patience!, David Bennett, co-editor.
