I normally *hate* HTML & making web pages. But in an effort to procrastinate I took a look at CSS2. I'm very impressed at how well (modern) browsers handle this stuff now. In the past, I had to work a few projects where I was required to make some sort of HTML or another. One of them involved making XSL that created HTML order forms, tabbed and everything, from XML. The nightmare of getting anything to layout correctly in those 4.x browsers was endless. I'm so glad those jobs are over.

Anyway, I put up all most of my projects & my papers and started to play with a psuedo blog. There are still a few things I'll have to get around to putting up there. I think it looks pretty good, I didn't really have to spend that much time on it - and using only CSS & no tables makes everything 100x easier. So take a look. . Now I have to get back to some programming.
