There will always be a storage device for our data. 5¼ diskettes have come and gone. 1.44 meg distketts have come and gone. And tapes have come and gone. The CDs and DVDs are dying out. But what still remains from the 1980s are hard drives. So I suppose they will still remain for years to come. If anything repaces them, since so much has already been stored on hard drives for nearly 30 years already, whoever comes up with a better method will probbably have to make the hard drive compatible with whatever is new. So for now, save your data on the web page hard drives.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
To make my research available to others and to ensure its availability
after I am 'pushing up daisies', I have created two web pages using html
and css and I have considered the use of java script at times.
However, on reading a recent transcript of an address by an archivist, I
was wondering about the safety of straying from straight html/css.
The archivist mainly talked about the problems of retaining material
recorded on outmoded systems ie tapes and CDs; however he did also raise
the problem of web pages that make calls to now defunct off-site plug-ins.
I wondered if the more experienced web designers could comment on this
