    When you say a "2001" Windows XP home page, do you mean a page that is optimized for web browsers from 2001 (such as IE6, which believe it or not was the best one out at the time)? I have very little experience with making web pages, but my general rule of thumb is that ideally a page should be able to function properly on at least IE5 (not that I'd advise ANYONE to use IE5 for anything in 2018, but if a page works with IE5 chances are it will work [and work fast] on virtually any browser released in the last twenty years).

    You're a fellow after my own heart! I wish more people had your mentality when it comes to making web pages...everyone focuses too much now on style and not enough on substance. A lot of sites today are bogged down with all kinds of useless & unhelpful garbage. Tons of widgets, heavy Java/JavaScript (no thanks--my computer isn't a coffee fan), Silverlight, HTML-5, etc. People today laugh at the older Geocities-era websites for being dated by today's standards. That 'dated' standard should be the standard now.

    No matter what browser I'm using, I should be able to go to any site and have assurance that it will at least partially work. Thanks to the push to normalize HTML-5 on the Internet, older browsers have gradually started to become more and more obsolete. Sites that a long time ago worked with no issues on classic browsers like IE5/IE6 now look like they went through a Cuisinart when you load them up today. That should have never happened. Sadly, many companies now do not have the courtesy to maintain fall-back versions of their main sites that will work on older browsers. There was nothing wrong with keeping it simple. Old does not = bad.
