Your Web Pages
Eschew anything but solid backgrounds on your web pages.
When you download stuff from the web, give appropriate credit.
Provide a link to the source.
Your web pages are you, but they are also your curriculum vitae.
An applicant's homepage is a prime check point for the modern employer.
The de facto location for astronomers to publish their home
and possibly other pages is the
Astroweb submission form
is rather poorly designed.
If you submit your home URL on the Astroweb form, then note that:
`Descriptive string' means your institution (e.g. JILA).
For `Category', use personal (don't choose a secondary classification,
even if you are interested in other_astronomy, etc.).
`Enter a Description...' is what will appear beside your name,
so look at what other people have written, and choose what you want,
which for many people is nothing.
`Enter Optional comments...' is apparently a note to the webmaster,
so don't put anything there.
