What you won't find
Frames. Most folks don't realize that frames can cause more problems than they solve—for one thing, try bookmarking a framed page. Besides, many visitors have commented that the encyclopędia is easy to navigate just the way it is.
Java, ActiveX, Flash, ShockWave, CardiacArrest, etc. Technology is a wonderful thing when it works. Unfortunately, "bleeding-edge" gadgets have their problems—particularly if you are not using the very latest version of one of the two main browsers. While I could easily add loads of "kewel" features to this site, I see no need for any non-HTML embellishments; my goal is to create a simple, "old-fashioned" site that is as universally browser-friendly as possible while maintaining a professional and attractive visual style. While a content-rich site may not be very exciting, surfers who find this site boring probably don't like The Avengers in the first place. I have no shortage of visitors who enjoy the site just the way it is. All you'll find here are pages with HTML.
Image maps. One of the worst things ever invented for the internet. While you sit and wait for a large graphic to download, you're stuck, unable to go anywhere because you cannot see what the graphic links do.
Animated GIFs. Since they slow downloads and hog server space, I find little use for them. Not to mention that a recent study found that many people consider them so distracting that they cover animations with their hands so they can read the content!
Page background music. See Animated GIFs.
Advertising. This is a free, non-commercial site. I place no advertising banners anywhere.
Stuff stolen from other sites. Perhaps I should be flattered that more and more I find my own materials cropping up on other sites—sometimes even commercial and "official" sites—but in truth it makes me quite furious. It is unethical and inexcusable. At TAF you will find things from only three sources: myself (I create all of my own graphics and text), contributions (the source is always credited) or commercial items such as the video product images, which are courtesy of Amazon with their blessing.
