GENERAL SITE UPDATE:
9th March, 2003 Navigation bars for Halliwell, Thomason & Pullen, Middle East miscellanea
8th April, 2003 Navigation bar for Middle East documentation
2nd July, 2003 Contents page link to new 'Unknown Origin' section
27th-30th October, 2005 Navigation bars for Frogmore Lodge press, Lee Priory press, History of Printing, Typography & the Private Press.
*Problems with contents page uploaded on 27th and difficulties in using Netscape browser hopefully fixed. Main site pages reorganised for faster downloading.
Search facility is now active. This is provided by Freefind
5th December, 2005 Commence standardising meta-tags and titles; create site link at end of texts (this can form a staircase or pyramid pattern if activated within the section page frame)
November, 2012 Commence using CSS on html pages; To date images have been saved against transparent background. The improvements in Adobe Photoshop now mean there is no size advantage in doing this and therefore backgrounds will be white, as is the page colour.



A number of entries have used traditional font styles and the full effect of these can be seen using the fonts in the font.zip file (true-type). This contains, as of 21st February, 2006, font faces: Caslon Antique (roman & italic), Goudi Olde Style (roman, bold & italic), Linotext th (roman, condensed & italic), Monk, WalkiLondon. Some of the Halliwell entries use a heading style close to the 'Monk' font and 16th/17th century entries are printed in a font close to 'Caslon Antique'. The body type for the site is 'Garamond' (as of 23rd April, 2008, a true-type version is included in the fonts zip, as using another font apart from this or Goudi can significantly alter the line construction in the republished poetry). For those without Garamond and who do not wish to install the supplied fonts, 'Palatino Linotype' has now been included in the html as a font. This latter is in use on some Macs and computers with Vista. It has much the same depth as Garamond, but is slightly wider. The site has been constructed using a general setting of browser medium text size, but when possible allowing for a larger size.

The intention is to keep the original variations and original literals (occasionally denoted by the site editor as "[lit.]" or "[lit.]" where they might be ambiguously modern). If this interferes with the aesthetics of a line, as in poetry for example, a comment may be made that can be viewed in 'source' mode. Editorial guidelines and insertions will be in another colour to the main text, the colour #8080ff .

Up to mid 2003 the typescript formatting may have contained minor errors. In addition to correcting these errors of style it is also intended, in view of the many variations in spelling and many typographical errors in the original texts, to have futher proofreading for all copy reproduced. On average this will eventually give each text three close proofreading sessions. The date of the last session completed will be noted in a comment line at the front of the text together with the last date any formatting or non-text modification was performed (as viewed in 'source' mode on the browser).
