What is the Jedi Council?
The Jedi Council is a group of Jedi who are the highest authority in the Jedi order. The group of twelve masters meditate and make important decisions in the council chamber, located in the center spire of the Jedi Temple.
This site has been on the web since June 6th, 1999. I started the site with Microsoft Word and uploaded it to some free server space on my Prodigy account. Things certainly have changed since then.
The Site of the Month was an award to honor other outstanding Star Wars web sites. The award has been closed down since the summer of 2004.
I try to update the Jedi Council at least once a week. Sometimes it does not need to be updated because there is nothing to update. There are sometimes when I have to update it more that once a week because there is more to tell. It all depends on the information and the resources.
I feel very strongly about cross-browser compatibility. Internet Explorer is not the only browser out there (and in my opinion, not the best one either) so I code the site in web standards to insure that your experience at The Jedi Council is great, regardless of what browser you use. I test the site in Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, Opera, and Safari but since I code in web standards, it should work in most browsers. As for screen resolutions, I recommend that you view The Jedi Council in a 800x600 or greater display.
To design the site I use a combination of things. I primarily type most of my code by hand. I sometimes use Macromedia Dreamweaver for some design work. Dreamweaver and FrontPage can only do so much and that is when you need to know HTML. To design graphics I use Adobe Photoshop. It is an amazing program and I have only begun to scratch the surface of what it can do. I write all of my own PHP code with exception to the news posting script. That is a program called Cute News. It is the best on the market in my opinion.
The PDF maker I use is called PDFCreator. It is an open source project written Visual Basic 6. Here is a link to the web site.
