I'm a big fan of regex; one of the most under-used and mis-used tools programmers have.

I'm a web developer, experienced with CFML, HTML, CSS and JS.

I'm passionate about freedom, in all forms.

I'm happy to go wandering about outside, in all sorts of weather.

HTML is a computer language used to provide content and meaning for websites.

It is an acronym for Hypertext Markup Language; Hypertext describes the web's link-based nature, whilst markup describes it's use for "marking" the data (content) with semantics (meaning).

You might notice a lot of buzz about HTML5 - the version number is meaningless, but it basically represents the industry's drive to to update and improve HTML as a language, by providing functionality which it should have already had since 2000.
