Creating Web Pages

As I started putting this web page together, I realized that a lot had changed since I built my first web site. The important discovery for me has been Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). These allow a broad range of control over the look of your web site while allowing graceful degredation for web browsers that don't support CSS. They work much better than using tables as a layout tool. I have tried to use them on this web site. If something doesn't work for you, email me, and let me know what operating system, web browser, and web browser version you are using. I will try to fix the problem.
Here are some of the links that I have found useful as I've created this web site.
