A note on web browser compatibility

Although this web site consists mostly of monochrome text in a seemingly very traditional format, its layout relies on surprisingly modern text layouting features in web browsers. It makes use of layouting features which have only been added to browsers recently and are, in fact, still incomplete in several widespread browsers. At the time of this writing, no tested browser displays this site as intended. This neatly demonstrates that layouting and rendering text is an extremely complicated topic and has not actually been solved yet for the web.

This site is designed to degrade gracefully for browsers which do not implement these advanced features. However, the quality of the presentation does suffer to various extents. Unfortunately, this cannot be entirely avoided.
