construction.htm pages provide construction logs for the project
folders in which
they occur. They are normally located through the banner Hard Hat image of the
index.htm pages for the same folder.
At the root level of any subweb, such as
, there is a
/construction folder that is reached
from the construction log of the root level and of each child
/construction honors the construction structure of
the site, it also having a construction log: this one. This
page links to the anchor-site's
and it is the only subweb page that does so.

- Use the include structures and also specify HTML 4.01 with appropriate
- 2002-10-13-08:41 Reduce to Minimal Cloaking Accommodation (orcmid)
- In updating
I came up with a simpler, minimal principle for cloaking that I am now
applying to this site:
1. All root global links are set with
target=_top and an
href is employed. This means that any
currently-applicable cloaking will be dropped and the true or new cloaking
for the destination, if any, will operate.
2. All absolute links to interiors of companion sites that are likely
to be cloaked (i.e., any of the
are followed using the cloaking of the linking site. That is,
the navigation appears to be an extended access under the current
cloaking. The use of such navigations will be carefully reviewed, but
they have a nice integrative quality for the most part. This practice
reduces the "sticking" of a subordinate page's URL as a new
cloak. That can still happen, but it won't occur on paths followed
from the entrance page of the cloak.
3. All relative links are left in page default mode, which means that
nothing is done about framing and any cloak is preserved. The one
exception is any global relative link. That link is always uncloaked
target=_top and a physical location will presumably
4. We rely on the targets to deal with anything further.
5. This minimal approach has a simple consistency. It works for
entries to sites at their home pages. It does not work for wanting to
bookmark particular pages or sections, and it does restore cloaking if
someone comes in with an old "physical" bookmark. The
creation of logical bookmarks remains an open problem.
6. There are places where we use more diverse approaches. These are
generally in the construction material where it may be valuable to
distinguish between the "physical" site image being navigated and
the "logical/primary" site with the official (cloaked and
forwarded) domain name. An example of this is done on the
page where there is annotation of where the visitor is and what is being
- 2002-10-12-14:09 Accommodate Cloaking (orcmid)
- With cloaking of
millennia-antica.com over the anchor
site, there are accommodations that must be made to deal with the potential
framing introduced by the cloaking service.
1. The link up to the anchor site on this page is modified to remain relative
but to force
2. Links internal to the site that are intended to provide the book-marked
page structure are made into absolute links with
so that a new cloaking with the full logical address will be initiated.
- 2002-08-02-13:57 Review Construction Approach and Organization (orcmid)
- 1. The Activities section is tuned.
2. More style preferences are determined, including having color consistency
with links and background hues. Links are to be the same brown color
as the main text. The background hue, whether or not the paper-texture
is used, is lightened to R:255, G:242, B:230.
3. This construction section will contain details on the construction and
information on photographs, images, and related items that relate to
confirmable experience specifically for this site.
4. The front door needs to be modified so that there are direct avenues to
the different sections of the site. This may be by a menu or by a
split image with different links. I am considering the second as
preferable at the moment, but may have to learn how to do a client-side

NuovoDoc.com is copied here,
pruned, and then customized to provide calendar and schedule information for
- 2002-02-03-08:17 Notes on Confirmable Experience and Future Changes (orcmid)
- Vicki and I are looking at what the entrance structure would be like as
more material is added.
1. Confirmable experiences. There is an opportunity to use materials
here as part of the confirmable experience of web site construction,
especially around managing the appearance and presentation of the site,
using images, and eventually adding photographs.
2. Vicki has told me the history of the Lidded Pot that is featured in her
logo. There is an actual pot and there is a story to tell about
it. This also fits nicely into a confirmable experience.
3. The entrance will be modified so that the pot image at the entrance leads
to pictures and a portfolio of Vicki's work.
4. The entrance will be modified so that the name part of the
"sign" leads to Vicki's statement of who she is and what Millennia
Antica is about.
5. The top of the entrance "sign" will lead to the studio and
6. There will be some cross-linking here.
7. There are materials to add in the construction section on how parts of
the site are developed and how that ties into confirmable experiences.
- 2002-01-08-14:39 Propagate Millennia Antica theme to all sections (orcmid)
- 1. The typography, coloring, and background paper texture is propagated to
all sections of the site in accordance with the corresponding pages at the
root of the site.
- 2001-12-29-21:04 Create Millennia Antica /construction section (orcmid)
- 1. The folder contents are cloned from the nfoCentrale anchor-site
2. The correct logo and title block links and text are created.
- 3. Only Construction Structure is put in at first, so that a simple
place-holder can be published quickly on the bCentral host site.
4. When this is published to the site, the first test is to establish an
alias that enters directly at the root for Millennia Antica rather than for
the anchor site.
5. The next item to confirm is whether relative links up to the anchor site
can be used, or whether there must be some other approach. (The Hard
Hat logo on this page has the only such link.)
