|About the Foam Totem|
Do yourself a favor, get a browser that has Cascading Style Sheet support. The Totem Tales use them extensively because a) we want them to look just right and b) putting text in an image is wrong! Style sheets allow us to give the FoamTotem the exact look the Foameister wants without sending you hundreds of K in useless images that are really just text.
The Totem feels that its web pages should emulate the printed page. Most of the things we read aren't very wide. Newspaper columns and paperback books are good examples.
On every page at this site, you'll find a navigation bar. The icons in the bar are described here:
|The Totem - brings you to the home page.|
|Previous - brings you the previous article or tale.|
|Next - brings you to the next article or tale.|
|Index - Brings you to an index of that portion of the site|
|About - Brings you here.|
That's the bar. Now, 'cause I know nobody really reads the 'About' page at a site, I'm gonna sing a little...
"Spider-man, Spider-man, Does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, catches thieves, just like flies. Look out! Here comes the Spider-man!"
"Is he strong? Listen, Bud! He's got radioactive blood. Can he swing from a thread? Take a look overhead. Hey there, there goes the Spider-man!" Yeah!
The Foam Totem site is written, devised, compiled, and stolen by Shannon Posniewski. Shannon (poz) is the author of the majority of the Foam Totem, with many Tales of the Foam Totem devised and written by Craig Zinkievich.
The site is put together with a set of custom Perl scripts which glue the source pages together, determine links, and apply a standard formatting.
