I remember when I built my first website in 1996. It was exhilarating to learn HTML and eventually have your site uploaded online. And yes, back then we only had HTML since CSS arrived late to the party.When I think about my first site, it was, ahem, exciting-looking. The reason why I say this is because all the pages had a different look. You could try to use a technique called SSI (Server Side Includes) to make the pages look a bit more uniform, but that was it.
There were times when I didn’t appreciate the support of a product or service that much. All I cared about was features, and how much they cost. I also thought that I was technically competent enough to overcome any technical obstacles.
