This web site and all its contents may
be, and is intended to be, copied and shared freely. You may download it
and burn it to CD, pass it out to your friends, upgrade it, make corrections,
add commentary, and/or post a copy on your own website. Especially post a copy
to your site-- the more places it's in, the merrier! If you edit the site, I
request that you follow the following guidelines:
- If you make any changes to the text of
the U.S. laws as shown in this site, please make sure that the text stays as
accurate as possible. Check your work with copies from the official Government
websites (see 'Resources' for links).
- If you delete portions of the U.S. law
text, please show that there are omitted portions in that location, e.g. with
an 'items omitted'
or similar notation.
- If you upgrade the web design, at
least if you plan to pass out copies or post it on the Web afterward, please
make it as user-friendly to as wide an audience as possible. I intend that as
many people as possible should be able to read this information. There's
a lot of people out there who are watching their pennies and hanging onto
their older boxes for a couple of years. So please don't turn it into a
Flash-heavy thing with sixteen layers and all the bells and whistles that is
only viewable on Internet Explorer 16.0. According to
latest stats, designing for I.E. 5.5 with an 800x600 monitor will cover
about 93% of the viewing audience.
- Also, please make sure that your
inline comments can be distinguished from the official text of the laws, such
as with a different font face.
- If you make changes or add stuff,
please add yourself to the bottom of the Credits (Acknowledgements.htm).
Unless you want to stay anonymous.
- If you make changes or add stuff, also
please add a note to the Revision Notes (Revision.htm) that shows what you
Finally, be sure to Zip up a copy of your
edited version of the site and make it available for others to download!
Share the joy!
