Tesserae updates as frequently as I write for it. In the interests of keeping you on top of what's happening and documenting the site going forward, here's the gist of things.

May 18, 2022 Okay, 90's Kids Might Remember This One

  • Expect more "soon", huh...well, I decided to finish up this page I had knocking around on why we use CSS in the first place. This officially starts the basic CSS section. Time will tell when I get to more.

March 8, 2022 Only True 90's Kids Will Remember

  • What? A new Tesserae update? As I continue my highly successful crusade against gigantic projects I've started over the past four years, it's time to start chipping away at the mosaic. Here's one on lorem ipsum, that funny filler text people use while they're making page designs. Expect more soon.

November 13, 2020 Assuming Anyone Wants to Read it...

  • New page on increasing the readability of a whole bunch of text over browser default styling. This is likely to be Tesserae's last update for 2020, so I wanted to try something a bit different.

October 6, 2020 Tabled For Now

  • New page on tables, used to format data in a tabular manner. This page also features Tesserae's first homegrown SVGs, handwritten by me! They're not, like, amazing or anything, but still useful to have.

August 31, 2020 Web TV

July 17, 2020 Damn, It Really is Simple!

  • Tesserae now has an RSS feed. Feel free to subscribe to it in your feed reader of choice. I suppose a page on RSS in the Extras section at some point wouldn't be amiss, given how surprisingly easy these are to write.

July 11, 2020 I'll Need to See Some ID

  • New page on IDs and classes, ways to name your elements for easier styling and scripting.

July 1, 2020 Quirky Nature

May 30, 2020 Dial 411

  • New page on directory indexes, the lists of files you get when you visit a folder in a web browser, and how index.html pages make for cleaner URLs.

March 25, 2020 Back for More

  • Tesserae relaunches with a new, sharper, more modern design using mini.css.
  • The beginner HTML tutorials have been rewritten from the ground up to be far clearer and feature more visuals.
  • A new section, "Before You Begin", debuts, featuring definitions, tool recommendations, and easing newcomers into the world of sitebuilding.
  • As of now, the two CSS and Advanced HTML sections are merely placeholders. Content will be readded as it's rewritten.
