    A clear write-up of a straightforward method for creating and hosting a personal website. Thanks.

    I was surprised to see the doctype (<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">), but I guess that falls into the category of It it’s not broken, don’t fix it.

    For anyone who wants to learn the basics of HTML and CSS, I recommend Interneting is Hard. (In fact, I’ll probably submit that now separately too.)

      This is true! It’s been that way forever and just works. But your comment made me think, “I should probably update it now.” I’ll give it a try and see if anything breaks. :-)

        I like using grav, as it supports markdown. I don’t mind the complexy tools, but to ‘just get things done’ grav is a very nice CMS.
