Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Gilbert, Sullivan and Lehrer

Back when I posted the lyrics to Xena; or, The Warrior Princess, one of our students came to me rather puzzled. He didn’t “get” it because, as it turned out, he’d never heard Gilbert & Sullivan’s Modern Major General nor Tom Lehrer’s The Elements (and here I thought all aspiring scientists were required to commit the latter to memory).

It’s with some measure of relief that I can point “B” to this Flash Animation in honour of Lehrer’s 75th birthday (which was yesterday) [via More Like This].
