Site map

This small (well — I suppose these days it's about medium-sized) site is organized into three main directories: the main body of HTML and CSS content, located in the root and main directories; the set of non-HTML and stand-alone pages referenced in the body of the site, located in the pub directory; and images and so on linked to from or transcluded in the site, located in the media directory. Location in the directory tree is indicated on the top of each page.

The below list is a listing by directory, done alphabetically. For a logical list, simply follow the flow emanating from ~/index.html.
