Given that you are reading this document, it is likely that you already have some notion how to find your way to my personal WWW page. You may have noticed my email address on the bottom of some of the pages. Nonetheless, here I present those details again in a neat box that you can print, cut out, and put in your wallet or purse. If you want a version of this business card to put in your wallet with printing on the back, then you’ll need to get one from me in person.

If you need to send me something encrypted, I have a PGP public key that you can use.
I am usually only online when at home and using the Mac, however, you should be able to reach me through the following as required:
All of the images in this web site are in the public domain, unless otherwise noted, and you are free to do whatever you want with those in the public domain. Similarly the CSS style sheets are available freely available for re-use. You can even re-use the HTML structures and formats if you wish.
The words, or rather the specific arrangement of words I have used, remain copyright to myself, and I would strongly prefer that you didn’t re-use them without my permission, or at least attributing them to me.
Of course I can’t enforce this copyright, but at least by stating that they’re my words, and you can’t have them unless you want to play nicely, I have asserted my intellectual property rights in a reasonably unambiguous fashion.

If the business card above is not inside a neat box, your web browser does not properly implement CSS. So far all of the web browsers I have tested variations of this business card on fail to display it consistently. OmniWeb as late as version 4.1b6v399 refuses to draw a frame around the <table> it’s contained in, but will erroneously size the enclosing <div> to contain the image. Opera as late as version 5.0.498 and all versions of Internet Explorer I’ve sampled will correctly paint the <table> frame, but do not support the CSS2 min-height attribute. That means that the image, or the text if I mark it up differently, will overflow the <div> frame. If anyone is able to come up with a cross-browser technique for what I’ve done here, I’d love to see it.
Addendum, 29th August, 2003: I thought, for a brief shining moment, that Eric Meyer had come up with a solution, but, alas, the closest result still involved some non-semantic hacks and had grief if the text height exceeded the image height.
