I guess it's what I get for going digital. I've been trying on and off, unsuccessfully, to get info
popups on the beautiful, clickthrough-deprived ANODE homepage. Those
little DHTML doohickeys never worked on Netscape, or never worked on the (regrettably) superior
IE. So, now you'll see on that page the install dates for the art projects (terminal illness
predates ANODE, so it's ANODE's incept date on there), and the update
dates for the variable-content pages, just like this little one right here.
Maybe it's what you get for going digital. I don't know. Either way, the popups are there,
they'll be updated as the pages are, and that irritating counter script which drove me batty got
its own virtual include. So the homepage is at index.shtml now ... and, in the method I use so well,
I haven't yet gone in and changed all of the index.html links to index.shtml, so I dropped a
refresh in to get you where you need to be. Maybe I'll fix it later, but maybe it'll end up
like the Elsewhere sub-nav bar and be broken on the site for months before I find out.
Oh, by the way, to give a little more life to these pages, I've put in a bit of code which
encourages me to put images in my page, just like above. The only thing is that my paragraph needs
to be longer on the page than the image, or it pushes over on entries below... But netscape still
makes them look like crap. O well.
