Screenshot of the week 13

Today I have spent some time re-writing my personal homepage using html and css. As you can see in the screenshot, it is very similar looking to its previous version. I would say it is almost identical once the page is fully loaded, but there are some important differences.

The previous version made extensive use of javascript to display the text. I cannot lie here, the effects were great and really cool, but there was a huge downside to it. You could not navigate the site using text browsers or simply put using any kind of browser which does not suport javascript (such as dillo). 

Now it is 99% pure html and 1% javascript since I could not resist including a small script to update the site's date. I think that keeping up to date unattendedly is a nice feature.

Apart from that small inclusion of the javascript snippet, I am very proud of my work because I achieved what a really wanted to achieve, a simple site with no bloat at all. For the first time in my life I have created a website which is fully compliant with w3c standards.

 Besides, and even though the css file is relatively simple, I have had a lot of fun playing with it.

You can see the sources (both html and css) usually pressing Ctrl + U in your browser.
