I've been following dive into mark
days to a more accessible weblog
and so far, everything he's said to do
I've pretty much done with this weblog.
entry is about the <HR> tag and how to change the look of
them. The method he uses works, but is a bit of a kludge. Mostly because
it supports Netscape 4x, which doesn't support CSS to any decent degree.
That's why I've forgone Netscape 4x support entirely. How I do it is the
way it's supposed to be done. First off, in the HTML for this page, I hide the
style sheet from Netscape 4x:
Netscape 4x doesn't suport “@import” so nothing gets included (thankfully,
else my style sheet would crash it, hard). The style sheet then has:
Then in the HTML page,
to use the image, I do:
And I have my fancy <HR>. And it works fine under the
current versions of Netscape (6x), Mozilla (from about 0.9.2 on up), Opera
and Internet Explorer (although those last two draw a faint grey border
around the image).

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
