If you use another browser and have problems then let me know; I will see what I can do to solve the problem.

Standards

I strongly believe in standards and adherence to the standards. That is particularly important for applications that are intended to run in many locations. Web sites are really nothing more than special types of applications intended to run in browsers. This web site has been built with that in mind and every page on ralongalumni.org should validate to the standards below.
