Welcome to my site. I'm Steven. When I first learned HTML I made this site to experiment with that. Later CSS was added, and the experiment still goes on. PHP/MySQL, AJAX, typefaces, styling... I don't have a background in any of these, so I keep searching for a good solution. Let me know if you think it's any good, or needs improvement. Suggestions are always welcome.

If you're using Internet Explorer (IE) as browser I would suggest you switch to a more mature one, like Firefox or Chrome. For a long time Microsoft was very obstinate when it came to its browser, thinking they were too big to comply with standards. All this is changing, and newer versions of Internet Explorer are more compliant to both HTML and CSS standards. Nevertheless I still encounter quirks in IE, and some functions common in other browsers don't work in IE. For example, CCS3 multiple column layout wasn't supported by IE until version 10. reports that IE8 supports only 26% of selected CSS criteria, in IE9 this was 54%, and for IE10 (the one-but-last version) it's finally 76%, so there's indeed improvement. (Firefox and Chrome score 86% for their one-but-last versions.) But in my experience IE is also slower than other browsers. Personally I prefer Firefox. I recommend IE users who don't want to change always to update to the most recent version.

Between learning CSS and PHP from time to time I'll add some content as well (gasps!). You can check the most recent changes in the change log.

My site is and will always remain ad-free.

You can always leave me a message with questions, constructive criticism, to report errors on my pages, or just to say "hi".

Enjoy your visit.
