its not my fault that browser tech moved backward since then

once upon a time the web was about information, text, and pictures, diagrams
and videos related to the text. Now its java, javascript, flash, god knows
what _unrelated_ to the subject at hand, only effect it has is distract from
the content which is what the reader cares about, eating more resources
net bandwidth, cpu and memory and of course all the secholes in the bloated
trash needed to view the latest brainfarts of the industry ...

ffmpeg.org is nice, CSS if used correct is fine as well
a good test to see if a web page is well written is to use a browser just
supporting plain html, no java* no flash no CSS and running on a text only
terminal if the webpage is not useable the author is not competent at writing

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your
right to say it. -- Voltaire
