About the Site
No proprietary software is used during its making, and it’s designed, maintained and hosted on various boxes running Debian GNU/Linux which are tweaked to optimize power efficiency. All the components involved in the making of the site from start to finish are entirely open source and very green, carbon neutral and environment friendly.
This site is best viewed with any browser that complies with the web standards (XHTML and CSS). Its layout uses CSS rather than tables, and the character set is Unicode (in its UTF-8 encoding). Interoperability, open standards and accessibility are important concepts that I believe should be respected and promoted on the internet, although it may be the case.
Some browsers don’t really support standards, but that shouldn’t be a reason to design browser-specific sites. I would like to emphasize that modern, standards-compliant browsers exist in great numbers. To name a few: Chromium, Opera, and of course Mozilla and its derivatives Firefox, Galeon, Epiphany, Camino, Firebird, and probably others.
This site is available in several languages and the page your browser displays depends on its configuration, and most browsers provide a setting allowing you to choose an order of preference for languages.
One last thing: this site doesn’t use any GIF files. The GIF format is somewhat dependent on some patents, or used to be until recently. Its legal status isn’t quite clear yet, so this site only uses images under the PNG format. It is of course an open and free format which also happens to be technically superior.
