As I developed this site, I noticed that I used certain techniques more than once, in different projects. This may be a good sign. Rather than describe a technique each time I used it, I set up this page. So, this is in no sense an exhaustive list; it's just things I don't want to describe repeatedly.

There's nothing special about these techniques. They are remarkably simple. However, when I was just getting started, some of the simplest things weren't obvious, so, if you're just getting started, too, maybe they'll be helpful. On the other hand, if you're more experienced and have improved on these techniques, I would love to hear from you so I can update these pages.
