We utilize a wide variety of tools and utilities for the development
of software, graphics, and integrating them together — delivering
solutions to your business. In the course of evolving our “bag
of tricks”, we have decided to post a few examples on our
site for your use. Many such tools are available on the Internet,
some at cost, others free. Here are a few that range from the quite
useful to the just plain fun!
Utility to take an e-mail address and convert it into a string
then be placed in a web page, to represent a fully functional e-mail
address link. The link may be used for people to contact your business
yet provides resistance to e-mail harvesting programs used by Spammers.
Don't let you or your customers fall
victim to spammers!
This conversion table can be used to interpret ASCII codes used
in the development of WWW pages. Such codes are necessary to represent
special characters in the development of pages. For example, an
"em-dash" appears as "—" but must be coded
as "—" for it to appear correctly. This is one
of the many marriages of typesetting and web page design that needs
to be addressed during development of your site. Currently this
table is written solely for the ISO Latin-1 character set most commonly
used by U.S. businesses and customers.
Play that venerable arcade game...we just could resist placing
this Flash demonstration from Macromedia
on this page for you to see the capabilities of this Web technology.
Other tools, utilities (& games) will be forthcoming from time
to time. Check back soon!
