Site Philosophy

Site Philosophy

The philosophy behind the design of all of my personal webpages (that is, pages with the root URL "http://pmyers.pcug.org.au") is that they must all be developed in raw HTML source code. As such, all pages were, and future updates and new pages will be, developed using "AceHTML 6 Pro" and uploaded to the host server using "AceFTP Freeware".

The reason for using source code rather than a more sophisticated program such as Dreamweaver, Frontpage or the built-in capabilities of Word & Excel to produce HTML code, is twofold:

  1. I get more satisfation out of developing these pages from scratch and as such, understanding what makes the final pages on the site appear the way they do when displayed on a web browser; and,
  2. Source code generated this way leads to smaller file sizes than a similar page produced using one of the more sophisticated programs, such as Dreanweaver or frontpage.
