Being a webmaster is hard work. It's a lot of fun, but there's a lot of tedium to it too, cutting and pasting code to make sure the style of your site remains the same page to page, going through a deep screen of HTML line by line to discover why all your text is suddenly appearing in bold.

Over the years, SENTENCE has had a lot of different looks. When I first started the site, I knew nothing about tables, and so visitors had to read wide, wide lines of type, hard enough to do on paper, but even more of an endurance contest with a monitor.

A number of webmasters give different version numbers to their sites, much like software manufacturers, so I suppose I'd call the tableless format of SENTENCE Version 1.0.

Once I did discover tables, I redid SENTENCE so that each page contained two tables, one on the left, occupying 33% of the screen, for navigational links, and a table on the right, taking up the remaining 67%, for content. I was using tiled background images back then, so the text for the different major pages of SENTENCE was in bolded white. We'll call that Version 2.0.

In mid-2002, I removed all the tiled background images from SENTENCE, which allowed me to present each page with black type on a white background, which I thought would be easier for visitors to read. I consider that change to be Version 2.1.

In early 2003, I restructured all of SENTENCE, so that the content pages could be accessed from a small number of "super pages". That's Version 2.2. (What would constitute Version 3.0? To me, that would be if, for example, I turned SENTENCE into a Flash site).

HISTORY records all the additions and changes I've made to SENTENCE over the years. When new features were added, when I joined different webrings, when I posted a new content page. I think this page, which is kind of a back stage page, would be of limited interest to most visitors, but it does get a lot of hits, so I suppose some of you out there are interested in knowing how SENTENCE evolved over the years. Sometimes I scroll down the page myself, revisiting all the work I've put into the site over the years.
