[ Adam ought to find this especially funny... ]

After seeing the link to Keith's "Tasty Bits from the Technology Front",
I had to go check it out... Today's "Tasty Bit of the Day" includes
mention of "www.webpagesthatsuck.com", a site that features an expos=E9
on bad web page authoring techniques. It looked interesting so off I
went... After laughing really hard, numerous times, I came upon the
topic "links awry". What, to my chagrin, should appear in the "example"
frame? The William and Mary Computer Science home page, no less.


At least Vincent Flanders (the author of "web pages that suck") had
this to say:

> I hate to admit it but the page has a certain pleasing overtone and it
> really doesn't suck that much. I'm presenting this page as an example
> of a technique which, in lesser hands, would be more problematic and I
> want to set a little bookmark in your head for the day when you see a
> much worse example. You'll go, "Ah, yes. Send it to Vincent."

Because a unified description is being facilitated by the code
development, a prepared correspondence is exhibiting a tendency towards
the general environment, but if a main essential is not in conflict
with the agenda, an order of magnitude by a fully automatic interfacing
is better.
