|04/23/06||I just received my first 5.0 Rated Award from
Casey's Celtic Charm and am positively thrilled. Thank you Casey's
Celtic Charm! You've made my day.
The site has been up since July 4th, 2001 and I've just spent the last 7 months upgrading it as mentioned below. Winning a top-rated award makes the effort all worth while.
The last two weeks has been spent applying for site awards. This initial process having been completed, I am now awaiting hopefully good news from the Award Programs to which I applied. During this period, I will be adding these awards to my site as they come in. To view these, please go to my Awards section.
I'm pleased to announce that with the exception of approximately 7 pages, 94% of this site meets the W3C's CSS and HTML 4.01 Strict standards as well as Section 508 accessibility. The reason for the 7 pages not meeting standards is that they contain "games" and other items related to the period that were created using public domain scripts written by others. I attempted to change the coding of these scripts to meet the standards, but due to the fact they were written years before, they did not accept the changes and I had to revert back to the original coding.
Updated Shopping Section. Book of the Month also updated to "Pride and Prejudice".
|10/24/05||Work has begun on updating site to W3C's 4.01 HTML Strict standard.|
|06/05/05||Finally, the long awaited update to Victorian Etiquette.|
