Made to Last

This website and its pages were Made to Last, following the recommendations laid out by Jeff Huang:

  1. Return to vanilla HTML/CSS — All pages are created in Markdown (.md), and styling applied via CSS.
  2. Don’t minimize that HTML — There’s no HTML to minimize.
  3. Prefer one page over severalOK.
  4. End all forms of hotlinking — Never started.
  5. 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.
  6. Obsessively compress your imagesOK.
  7. Eliminate the broken URL riskOK.
