The Mission

Dave Liebman's mission is the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Not much of a mission, is it? Well, I don't know anyone named Dave Liebman. This page is just a CSS styling exercise. The violinist at the top of the page is actually my mother's uncle Dave as a teenager taken back somewhere around 1920! My brother scanned some old family photos for archival purposes and I just thought that one was an exceptional antique worth doing something with.

Anyway, back to the styling exercise. Note that this page has a "fluid" design. Fluid means it adapts to a wide variety of viewing environments. You can shrink or expand the "design width" of the page by changing the size of your browser window, and it will retain proportions that maintain its usability. If you are using a modern, standards-compliant browser, you can make the window as wide as you like, but the content width will be restrained to a maximum width based upon the size of your default font, so that these paragraph lines won't become so long as to make reading unreasonably difficult.

The text you see here, except for the title at the top of the page, the mission statement, which is a little larger for emphasis, and the copyright info at the bottom that nobody reads, is whatever you have set as your browser default. If you don't like its style or type, you can change your default to what you like, and will see it right here. I don't know what size or style is best for you. It's your job to figure out what you like best and adjust accordingly. If that's a bother, it should be OK, as the people who made your browser made initial defaults that work well enough for most people, and simply made it easy enough for you to change if you please.

This page is valid HTML 4.01. That means the likelihood it will fail to render properly in any particular browser designed for rendering HTML is quite remote, unlike pages created with some popular page authoring software. You don't need to use some particular browser or operating system that requires it to view and use it. This standards-compliance makes everyone welcome!

The web is for everyone, regardless of race, religion, gender, visual acuity, screen resolution, DPI, window size, or operating system.
