Francky's Developers Corner:
tips for improving websites

This little Developers Corner-website was launched to share elements of building web pages using the latest WEB STANDARDS techniques. • You will find analysis on broad topics mixed with some quick tips. • Some of these techniques were discovered from desperate searches on the web while others were developed or adapted by myself over time. • Included are solid, proven solutions as well as some techniques that are still evolving. • New material will be added on a sporadic basis: maybe tomorrow, maybe a half a year from now...
