Web Philosophy and Pledge

Philosophy

If you're looking for a ``flashy'' home page with lots of useless in-lined GIFs that add nothing to the content GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. I could add all sorts of ``pretty'' pictures that increase the network bandwidth, but I believe this violates the principle behind HTML: ``content is more important than form''. HTML was designed to logically mark-up a document and leave the formatting to the viewer's pleasure.

My goal is to have automatic webpage generation, via the m4 macro program, to hide most of the HTML details, however still allowing full access to the underlying HTML, if desired.

I also grant that the macro and auxiliary sources can be redistributed according to the GNU copyleft or public license (GPL).

Pledge

I will:

Whether I succeed, you be the judge of that!
