This web-site has been designed with the brilliant Opera and Mozilla browsers in mind. It will work with Micros**ts Internet Explorer version 4.0 and higher, he said grudgingly, but itll look quite squashed up because Im not going to put in a lot of margins and things just for some crap software from planet Earths equivalent of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation (theyll be first against the wall when the revolution comes).
The site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) to give a consistent look across all the pages, but the main one will only need to be downloaded once, unless you have switched off local cacheing. Ive gone for quite a chunky look to these pages because of the white background (see below). If youre running Windows 98, NT or XP, the main headings should appear in a rather nice (I think) titling face called Matura MT Script capitals, which liven things up a bit, otherwise youll have to put up with the rather foursquare variants of Arial.
HTML tables are used in many places to get useful layouts, but as the pages are mostly text so they ought to load nice and fast whatever the speed of your link and the tables are usually separate for each section, you shouldnt have to wait too long for the start of the page to display. There are graphics now on the albums and singles descriptions, so if youve got a slow link use the single page text version of the discography for quick queries.
Because I like real quote-marks, both single and double, I have used quite a number of the non-conforming special characters, (beginning &#) but unless youve got a particularly old or idiosyncratic browser this shouldnt cause you any problems.
Because of the large number of cross-links in the discography and related pages you may like to turn off the link underlining in your Browser set-up options. This will make my pages look far less cluttered.
I have deliberately chosen a colour scheme for these pages that is reminiscent of the graphic work on Eddis 1996 album Candyfloss and Medicine, which was designed by M @ Maitland. The basic colours are maroon and orange on white, with black text; if you want to see the original, go out and buy the album - you wont regret it.
Unless you have set your browser to keep to its own colours, links from the pages will be in maroon and visted links (that is, links to pages you have already looked at) will be in orange. To keep the colour scheme in harmony, the page headings and some of the sub-headings are also in these colours: however, they do not act as links, largely because, as headings, they don need to, but of course, if they did, they would change colour when you had visited the page to which each refers.
are in ISO8601 format, by the way.
