If you designed websites (even for a club or small business) in the mid-90's, you recall the experience of working with tables and invisible GIFs for layout, proprietary HTML tags (ie <marquee>), scrolling banners, and the popularity of the starfield as a webpage background.  The Heaven's Gate Cult followed these design principles, and as you can see in the pictorial history below, it appears that we did so at Microsoft as well.  Enjoy the progression!
