Website Development
The website technology supporting Philadelphia Reflections is PHP, MySQL and DHTML. The web hosting service is Internet Planners. The development of this website has provided an opportunity to learn new technology, to try out different techniques for getting noticed by the search engines and the trials and tribulations of dealing with malicious hackers and spammers who range from the annoying to the abusive. This collection of articles documents some of our experiences and we hope that people surfing the web looking for solutions to problems we've encountered will benefit.

Javascript: document.write and XHTML

For reasons that make no sense to me, the Javascript command document.write does not work when your page is rendered properly in XHMTL (as described elsewhere in this Topic).

I have searched the web in vain to find a Javascript solution. Many are offered but none work worth a damn.

So don't bother. Use PHP's echo function. It works perfectly.
