Hmmm. I think I prefer blakem's plain text approach. On my browser, epoptai's page produces a font size that requires a magnifying glass to view. Thankfully my browser includes one, but pressing it increases all the text on the page and I had to press it a couple of times to get back to my default "regular" text size-- which is the size I expect most of the text on a page to be in. That's why that size is the default.

Then he's gone and used form inputs as display elements. I suppose form elements can be seen as graphic widgets, but I have a tendency to expect them to do something.
So maybe our opinions differ about what is good web design, but blakem's code is solid Perl and that gives it a decent foundation upon which to build and add embellishments and prettifications. But as I said, I like it the way it is. :)
