All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

J. R. R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

It has been said that the web is a triumph of form over content. The Internet equivalent of television. The medium designed for people with five second attention spans. Well, anything that can only hold my attention for five seconds, I don't want to see in the first place. I like words. I don't like pointless graphics. I don't have a burning desire to click on everything I see. And so, these are my web pages.

An attempt to create a triumph of content over form, if you will.

Graphics are sparse. Text is common. Links are present only when they add something to the content. All pages are validated XHTML, as strict as possible, with all formatting information in style sheets, so that they will be readable on any standards-compliant browser. And somewhere herein is, I hope, something that will capture your attention for more than five seconds.
