I'll put myself out on a limb - here's the link -

Looks like a nice, clean site - clean code. Like something a musician would put together. Or, maybe I'm just being nice because I have a great appreciation for music and bands.


I know there are some things not quite as I'd like them but did not have
time to figure out more. Be gentle, please!!

Oh - it took time and some help, but it seems to work pretty well in
most browsers. Whew!!

I've created some web pages that look decent...but I did it by surfing the web until I found a page design that I liked/wanted and tried to mimic it best I could.

With enough training and the right tools, I think most RPG/COBOL developers could make respectable web pages. The questions to me are: How much training? What kinds of training? What kinds of tools? Will your RPG/COBOL developers even want to be retrained as web developers? When does it become more practical to hire web developers than to retrain RPG/COBOL developers?

Plus, professional web developers work full-time learning the art of making great web pages. RPG/COBOL programmers won't have the same amount of time to devote to learning the art of creating web pages. That may always be a handicap when it comes to developing award-winning designs.
