About Dragon Under Glass

Here There Be Dragons
The dragon has been both a positive and a negative symbol throughout many cultures. Here, we focus on the positive.
At Dragon Under Glass, the dragon is a metaphor for the turbulent forces of creativity and everything associated with it: emotion, strength, truth, inspiration, and fire.
The glass encasing the dragon is control, which writers and designers attempt to exert over creativity. It is also the focusing lens--of the eye, of the camera, of the monitor, or of the lightbulb.
Glass can reflect, scatter, or project a true image. It can focus on pieces of an image for emphasis.
Dragon Under Glass strives to bring creativity into focus for you.
Technical Information About the Dragon Under Glass Web Site
Although we much prefer to "hand code" HTML, the layout of this Web site was an experiment with Adobe ImageReady and was not hand-coded. Our hand-coded material is generally much cleaner.
ImageReady is an old-fashioned utility which saves time when cutting up a complex image for the Web.
Also, the HTML output under default settings violates many good programming practices, causing HTML validators to choke. We found it better than most automatically generated HTML, and you can change some of the options to get better code.
All in all, an impressive tool for its time.
