|27th-30th October, 2005||

*Problems with contents page uploaded on 27th and difficulties in using Netscape browser hopefully fixed. Main site pages reorganised for faster downloading.
Search facility is now active. This is provided by Freefind
|5th December, 2005||Commence standardising meta-tags and titles; create site link at end of texts (this can form a staircase or pyramid pattern if activated within the section page frame)|
|23rd April, 2008||FONTS. A number of entries have used traditional font styles and the full effect of these can be seen using the fonts in the font.zip file (true-type). This contains, as of 21st February, 2006, font faces: Caslon Antique (roman & italic), Goudi Olde Style (roman, bold & italic), Linotext th (roman, condensed & italic), Monk, WalkiLondon. Some of the Halliwell entries use a heading style close to the 'Monk' font and 16th/17th century entries are printed in a font close to 'Caslon Antique'. The body type for the site is 'Garamond' (as of 23rd April, 2008, a true-type version is included in the fonts zip, as using another font apart from this or Goudi can significantly alter the line construction in the republished poetry). For those without Garamond and who do not wish to install the supplied fonts, 'Palatino Linotype' has now been included in the html as a font. This latter is in use on some Macs and computers with Vista. It has much the same depth as Garamond, but is slightly wider. The site has been constructed using a general setting of browser medium text size, but when possible allowing for a larger size.|
|November, 2012||Commence using CSS on html pages; To date images have been saved against transparent background. The improvements in Adobe Photoshop now mean there is no size advantage in doing this and therefore backgrounds will be white, as is the page colour.|
Due to the widespread use of mobile smart phone to access the internet it is hoped to adapt the older web pages to these screens with viewport coding in the head of the html. What CSS there was has been improved and features in the latest 2018 pages and the doctype revised to 4.01 transitional. For older browsers a script referring to a 'dist' folder with html5shiv.js based files has been introduced but, as the site editor has no longer access to the older browsers, it is not known if this works or not.
Not all images processed since 2012 have white instead of transparent background, as initially intended, why? Because that aim was forgotten!
LINKS: Some of the links to a separate site carrying the 'Middle East Miscellany' are no longer valid. This problem should soon be remedied.
The site is now HTTPS. A few pages which have maps are in a sub-domain not covered by the SSL certificate. These should come up as a separate tab in your browser and be http://.
The intention is to keep the original variations and original literals (occasionally denoted by the site editor as "[lit.]" or "[lit.]" where they might be ambiguously modern). If this interferes with the aesthetics of a line, as in poetry for example, a comment may be made that can be viewed in 'source' mode. Editorial guidelines and insertions will be in another colour to the main text, usually in the colour #8080ff .
It is hoped each text will eventually have three close proofreading sessions, at least one on paper denoted by 'pr'. The date of the last session completed will be noted in a source level comment line before the text, together with the last date any formatting or non-text modification was performed.
