I have very little experience writing web pages. I am retired and got into computers just a few years ago. Mostly self taught. I wrote the icon page a few years ago.

My page was done this spring. It is written in notepad. All graphics except one email gif (on icon page) are mine. I had a friend show me a few basic things and how to upload it.

If any one has time let me know how I did.

Hi from the other side of the pond

Just thought you would like to know that your web pages work OK on a Unix box as I have just had a look at them with a Netscape engined browser.

Keep up the good work

Congratulations Mike. I am impressed!

Very good. The main thing I would add is a META description since that text is displayed in some search engines, and will help them to classify you.

Mike, right mouse click on this forum page and view the source. Right at the top is an example. You already have some of the meta tags, this is just one more. <META NAME="description" CONTENT=" This forum is provided for the discussion of issues involved in creating Web pages using HTML. By the way, HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language, and not, Hope This Monster Loads!">

g'day mike,

pretty good hey, i started my own page around 7 years ago very basic simple beginning learnt much along the way, learnt HTML the hard way i reckon.

anyway just in case check the source of my page and see waht i have got in meta-titles and meta-names or other maybe some ideas there for you hey. with my sort of page the names i used i was suggested to sue to attract the search engines, and getting visitors to chat to is what it is all about hey?

your page loaded quick for me on 56k dial up in rural australia where the lines are congested and dial up is slow.
