Why is there all this blank space on every page of this website?
(aka Why do I have to scroll down so far to see the text, stories, pictures, etc.)

For anyone using an older browser, Netscape 4, Internet Explorer 4, or prior versions, you'll see a bunch of blank space on the page and you have to scroll down a long way to get to the page content, text, stories, pictures, etc. This website is designed with "forward" compatibility in mind, adhering to current web standards, so it looks best in newer browsers like Netscape 6, Internet Explorer 5+, Opera 5+.

For more info, check out The Web Standards Project (also has links to a variety of newer browsers and browser upgrades for various operating systems) and A List Apart.

Now back to the important stuff that you came here to see!
