Design notes

This site was designed and developed by Gyrus, who works at Tengai and plays at Dreamflesh. It's built using web standards recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The aim is to make it as accessible and usable as possible to as wide an audience as possible.

However, we don't have as much time as we'd like to devote to this labour-of-love site, and some compromises have been made. You will find that the older your browser, the less likely you will have access to the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) that control the site's layout and design. We should stress that while this means the site won't look very pretty to users of older browsers, theoretically everyone will still have access to the site's content. While we like pretty designs as much as the next guy, the content is the heart of this site, and you should have no problems accessing it. In fact, more people (e.g. those using non-standard devices like PDAs) should have access to it than with the previous tables-based design.

Our biggest omission is support for Internet Explorer 5, which many people still use, and does have relatively good CSS support. Still, it's a pain in the arse. We may find time to develop proper CSS for this browser, we may not. In the meantime, there are basic styles for IE 5 users, so you're not looking at butt-ugly black-on-white content. Even so you — and users of other old browsers — are encouraged to upgrade if possible. We recommend:

Any comments, or reports of technical difficulties accessing the site, are welcome.
