Welcome to the Experiments Page.

These Experiments are just that. There maybe a description of what the experiment is intended to do, but don't count on that.

At present this entire website is an experiment. At present the page is written with W3Schools CSS. This is an extended version of CSS that provides some added functionality.

Working with PHP. This is a series of demonstrations as I work with PHP. The Idea is to create examples of what PHP can do while practicing.

Working with Javascript.

As with PHP in Experiment002 this is not a tutorial, but a way to practice while looking for practical ideas
