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 10.13.x High Sierra.

HTML is written using Optima System's PageSpinner for Macintosh (ancient software but it keeps on ticking), with some help from Bare Bone Software's BBEdit and Hivelogic's Enkoder:

Graphics are created using Lemke Software's Graphic Converter (not using this as much), Stone Design's Create (again, pretty ancient software and not used much), Apple Preview.app, and Pixelmator:

Pages are tested using Mac products: Safari and Google Chrome:
