This site was designed and deployed by Michael Gravel. The masthead design was adapted from a design by Thomas Trofimuk. The site is constructed with valid XHTML Strict using valid CSS for all presentation and positioning. Content is managed by Textpattern, the best 'lil blog engine anyone could ask for. This site is hosted by the amazing folks down at Dreamhost, quite possibly the best web hosts on the planet.
The masthead is set in good 'ol Garamond Bold. Body copy and headlines are Georgia all around. The drop cap effect, set in Garamond, was achieved using a variation on Jason Santa Maria's fantastic CSS-based technique. Full credit to him for the idea and the CSS structure.
