This page lists site evaluations (aka a Website Review) of this domain,
"folklib.net", created by a growing number of on-line companies whose only
purpose is to evaluate your domain and then try to sell you their one time or
ongoing services to fix all the things they found wrong with your site. These
various "folklib.net" evaluations have been very helpful and have provided
several suggestions which I have implemented to improve my site. However, as a
long retired UW-Oshkosh computer programmer, I cannot afford to pay anyone tens

directory names. Google does not index words in URLs that are separated by
In the years since 1995 that I have been creating this site, nobody until
April 2015 ever told me this was a problem. I used underscores to improve
human readability. At this late date it is not posible to rename hundreds of
page names and directory names. However, starting with this page, I will use
hyphens in all newly created URLs.
- Use of obsolete HTML code like <font> and
I know these should be replaced with CSS, but the training materials I have
seen only teach you how to create a new CSS site from scratch. None of them
show me how to take a 1,000 page text site and convert every page to CSS.
