You stand by a calm green lake surrounded by thick reeds.
The sun feels pleasantly warm, gray cygnets bob gently in
the water. You become aware of a blue figure waving for your

Long-story-short, I’ve become pleased with what just a
little experimenting (and CSS-selectors) can make. HTML
has limitations, but they are healthy if your aim is
simple, semantic web documents. It’s been a while since I
had my own site, and I decided to start one up as a little
