About the Parchment Style

This is a style available for the Suite 101 Hitch-hiking archive.

This is the basic style I adopted for my web presentations in 1995 in order to provide an elegant backdrop to text, without being garish or overly colourful, relying on a single, reasonably sized graphic and a single 3 celled table to provide a left and right margin.

It characterised the "brown-paper" bag style of the whiole web site, aiming to be low on graphics, bells and whistles, but hight in quality, content and practicality. Those traits received some praise of the years that followed, but with ever increasing badwidth available to more and more people since then many have become used to a lot fo color and graphic layout and this style begins to look dated I suspect.
