About this Web Site

This web site was created in Dreamweaver version 8, with most of the graphics being created in Fireworks 8. Photoshop was probably used for some of it, too.

The layout was done using CSS (cascading style sheets), as opposed to the old-fashioned table (grid) based layout. The site has been tested in many browsers, but may not play nicely if you are using a very old browser such as Netscape version 4. Sorry.

The CSS Style Switcher (the little colored boxes up near the top of the page which you may have clicked on) is courtesy of It uses a javascript program to change the look of the site (fonts, colors, backgrounds, and so on). The current themes will be updated from time to time, & new ones will most likely be created.
