|The HTML on my pages||- by Jörg Tiemann|
HTML is the language spoken by a tribe of headhunters near the source of the
Nile. It has proven useful for creating web pages and frenzied pygmy dance
rituals. It is a simple language that can be edited with tools such as EDLIN,
vi or the air traffic control system at the O'Hare Internation Airport.|
I optimize my pages not for browsers but to meet the HTML standards. Most modern and not so modern browsers can cope with that. Among the browsers I had a look at my pages with are:
All those browsers are capable to display my pages just fine. If you want a recommendation I can point you at links and mozilla. Unfortunately the good old IBM Webexplorer is suboptimal at tables (and does not know frames which however I do not use anyway) otherwise it would still be my No 1 recommendation.
If you choose a graphical browser, a window of at least 800x600 pels would be fine, a textmodebrowser may show the best results when the character window has a size of about 90x50 characters.
Short answer: I do respect your own preferences. For both, the font and the font size, are exactely what is set in your browsers preferences. If you don't like those settings feel free to change them.

For my pages your browser does not need
I try to validate my pages at http://validator.w3.org/ -- and usually I kick them until they validate as HTML 4.01 Transitional just fine. To make revalidation easy for you and me there is the "valid html 4.01 icon" at the bottom of all validated pages. Just click on it to see whether the page still validates as HTML 4.01 Transitional -- or if I've managed to spoil it all. ;-)
When it comes to "enhanced" page design I am content to enhance the content and therefore do not need to use any dumb proprietary HTML "enhancements" some browsers do provide in order to encourage the creation of webpages incompatible with the HTML standards and incompatible with other browsers.
