Technical notes

This is a fixed width, center aligned, standards compliant & accessible website. The multi column layouts are accomplished purely with 'floats' - tables are only used for displaying information on books and similar data that should be presented in tabular form.

The main technical feature of this site is the use of large video clips for didactic purposes

The whole site is managed by the ExpressionEngine CMS, which provides automatic display of time sensitive materials etc
