(Stupid Puce Ribbon 
picture goes here) He also firmly believes in simplicity in Web Page design. His pledge to you is that you will see no huge slow-to-load graphics, no blinking text, and no meaningless animated images anywhere in his space. Maybe the rest of the world has forgotten that the ML in HTML stands for "Markup Language", but he hasn't. As such, he is the founding (only) member of CAUGHT, Consortium Against Unnecessary Graphics and Hypertext Tags. If you agree, display the Stupid Puce Ribbon on your page with a pointer to the CAUGHT page. On occasion he has been known to write about himself in the 3rd person.
