That was then:

Armed with an article from MacUser magazine on writing HTML, in 1996 I created the first Wilde Bunch webpage. At first I used the word processor on my Mac (ClarisWorks 4) for the code, and the vector drawing application FreeHand for the graphics. I soon discovered a number of shareware and low priced commercial applications to help author web pages. Here is a PDF of homepage from 1997.

This is now:

All web material is managed/created on an Apple MacBook Pro 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 running macOS X 10.15.x Catalina.

HTML used to be written using Optima System's PageSpinner for Macintosh (now obsolete), with some help from Bare Bone Software's BBEdit and Hivelogic's Enkoder (obsolete).
At this point I am barely keeping up with updates using BBEdit.
My code is archaic and obsolete. I just don't understand CSS even though I have been able to plug it in here and there.

Original graphics were created using Lemke Software's Graphic Converter, Stone Design's Create, and Macromedia Freehand (which was killed by Adobe). Currently, Apple Preview.app, and Pixelmator are in use.
