Well, thanks to some advice from my daughter, who is a professional graphic designer, I got the inspiration to rebuild the web-site header, which has been planned for 2 months and also to upgrade the front page.

I’m sure I haven’t finished and my daughter will certainly have something more to add, but it’s certainly an improvement on the previous version.

Continuing my reading of the works of Vannevar Bush (1945), Ted Nelson (1987) and Sir Tim Berners-Lee on the subject of the evolution of the first concepts of hypertext (memex) to data linking, over the intervening 64 years.

Added a ‘Quick Start’ feature to my web-site to help with making the site even more accessible to non-techies.

Just a word to say that I found that, if I switch the Auto Height parameter of the wrapper to ‘No’, the XHTML becomes standards compliant, so now that is the state of every page of the site.

I spent the day going through every page of my main Joomla web-site, checking for W3C XHTML 1.0 and CSS 2.12 compliance, fixing each error as I found it.

With the exception of 2 pages containing Joomla ‘wrapper’ modules, which are essentially HTML iFrames, I have succeeded. However, these wrappers do contain an onLoad() event called on the iFrame object, which is not XHTML 1.0 compliant – even in transitional form. It is needed because some browsers don’t re-size iFrames automatically, when the window is re-sized.

Therefore, I shall have to live with these 2 non-standard errors in the site, until some future Joomla finds a way around the issue.

I did some other stuff, such as making the robots.txt file ACAP compliant and adding hidden hCard code to every page.

I changed the footer also to include all these decals and yet still look good.
