Any site that nags people about JS, forces OpenID and makes heavy use of AJAX is a crappy site, period.

I've tried to avoid having a site that was more than just plain html and style sheets. <g>

I find that quite respectable (and rare) these days.

I do find server-side scripting to be very helpful, though. But then, of course, that puts one right in my own personal hell of "Why isn't there a server-scripting language that doesn't suck *and* is guaranteed to be easily portable to any server?" Auto-generating HTML off-line is a nice way around that whenever it's possible (like for documentation).

OK, that wiki seems good for my proposal. I never paid attention to the buttons because I never thought they would direct to the spefic topic in the wiki.

See you there!
