Made to Last
This website and its pages were Made to Last, following the recommendations laid out by Jeff Huang:
- Return to vanilla HTML/CSS — All pages are created in Markdown (.md), and styling applied via CSS.
- Don’t minimize that HTML — There’s no HTML to minimize.
- Prefer one page over several — OK.
- End all forms of hotlinking — Never started.
- Stick with native fonts — I cheat a little bit here. I do use the recommended font sets from System Font Stack, but because CSS makes it possible, I pull in a font from Google as the first option for text.
- Obsessively compress your images — OK.
- Eliminate the broken URL risk — OK.
