this page

This set of pages has hardly changed since about 1997. That explains the weird HTML — which was produced using a set of C preprocessor macros, of all things, that have long ago been lost — and the old-fashioned table-based layout with a vast number of tiny spacer images, just like HTML used to be done.

This page originally contained a note about how the coloured background would only show up in Netscape 3 or later. That dates it. I was probably still using Netscape 1.12 for most of my own browsing.

The coloured pattern is thieved from Piet Mondrian's Composition No. 3 Blanc-Jaune. Only the front page has an authentic colour-scheme. The other pages take a careful look at the concepts of beauty and aesthetic balance, before gleefully abandoning them to die by the roadside.
