Interesting Relevant Businesses and Websites
Midway through 2007, we were informed that Microsoft was dropping support of the tool (FRONTPAGE and its server extensions) which we used to build and support our website. We wre further informed that our site host, and probably most others, would be eliminating support for the FRONTPAGE-based sites.
Because FRONTPAGE generates such wretched, atrocious code, we had been wanting to abandon it for some time. Being abandoned by our benevolent servants in Redmond provided the trigger for us to switch over to DREAMWEAVER. However, the tasks of designing a new look and translating the more than 125 pages on this site over to the new look and XHTML-1.0 code was a daunting one.
It was my great fortune to meet the owner of a web / software consulting firm ConsultWare. After a few discussions about our website goals, Consultware agreed to assist us in the conversion.
Suffice it to say that we could not be more satisfied with ConsultWare's work. They designed and built all the XHTML structures, definitions, style sheets and page templates which made it possible for us at EPI to do the conversion "gruntwork" with minimal impact on our work schedules. They are scrupulously honest about billing, and extremely talented in a wide variety of software and web design disciplines.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND CONSULTWARE for any website design or upgrade.
