Why is this site purple?
Purple? It's a white background, and it's ugly.
A less graphical version of this site was created because I object to websites which don't take in to consideration the different ways in which people access the web. The version does not, however, completely meet accessibility guidelines. It's very difficult to meet some of them when your site relies upon code and portions could vary depending upon context. There's also a limit to how much effort I'm willing to go to simply to make a statement--this is a personal website, after all, and I don't expect more than 100 people to look at it (and of the 100, I expect none of them to want the accessible mode). Remember, my primary goal is to make the site easy for me to update and to allow myself an opportunity to play around with code.
Furthermore, some guidelines--such as "Use the simplest and most straightforward language that is possible."--are are just plain stupid for a personal site. If I can't play with the language and attempt to make interesting content, there is no purpose for making a personal web site. I can see the point in government or public sites, but quite honestly, if you can't understand what I say, you can't possibly be interested in my site or me.
