About this Website

How this Website was Created


This website was hand-coded using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML, Version 5), the standard markup language for Web pages. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used for text formatting and page layout. A JavaScript* library called jQuery is used for form validation, navigation, image copyright protection, and various special effects. Finally, a server-side scripting language called PHP is used to process input from the contact form.

In summary, the languages used for this website include:

  • HTML 5
  • CSS
  • JavaScript/jQuery
  • PHP
