Well. My WWW pages have gone through another generation. I reckon that we are up to the fifth generation of pages, and I've tried to reflect some of the ideas used in these page in my own ones. Here's some of the redrafted ones:

One of the main reasons that I have managed to update the page so quickly is that I have used lots of reusable code (especially using JavaScript). For example the menu on the left-hand side is created by JavaScript, such as:

document.write("<a href='www_pages_of_the_past_july2002.htm'>July 2002 </a><br>");
document.write("<a href='www_pages_of_the_past_july2002_2.htm'>July 2002 - Pt 2</a><br>");
document.write("<a href='www_pages_of_the_past_july2002_3.htm'>July 2002 - Pt 3</a><br>");

document.write("<a href='www_pages_of_the_past_june2002.htm'>June 2002</a><br>");
document.write("<a href='www_pages_of_the_past_june2002_pt2.htm'>June 2002 (II)</a><br>");

This is contained in a single file named menu_www_past.js and is included using the following code:

<script language=JavaScript src="menu_www_past.js"></script>

I can thus make a single change to this file, and it is automatically updated in all the referenced files.
