A new style!

Anneke and I are changing the style of my web site to reflect the books I'm writing: a Greek red-figure pottery theme, sort of. This blog is the first piece to go live.

It interests me just how primitive the web remains to this day. The coding you have to do to customise a site (Blogger.com, to pick a random example currently dear to my bile) is very similar to the troff formatting people used to have to write to do word processing back in the 70s. We've had WYSIWIG word processors for decades, but somehow this innovation has passed the web by, unless you want to use highly inflexible designs. (sigh)
