    1. Jane, this is not a provider of services and is up for sale or lease. It is a blog. Your participation is welcome, as is your decision to withdraw participation. I do not know what to do to help you not be exposed to a web site you are going to voluntarily. If, however, you suspect foul play, please email me directly mholzschlag at gmail dot com. Otherwise, I would remove it from lists and bookmarks but I cannot do so. You can, however. Or just do not click on this blog/domain. – there are many wonderful resources- take initiative is my thought- figure out what you want to do Web wise and ask others you know to trust. Good luck and all success to you!

  1. Dear Molly Holzschlag,

    I am currently conducting research on the history of web formats in my position at University of Bonn, Germany. I already interviewed Bert Bos, John Allsopp and Håkon Wium Lie. I have some questions after reading some historical ressources on your history with CSS and the work on the book “The Zen of CSS Design” that I would like to ask you in the context of my research. Would it be ok for you to if I would aks you some questions that came up in my research project regarding the history of CSS via mail? Please feel free to contact me if you have any further question.

    Kind Regards
    Sebastian Randerath
