About the Author

Web Developer
Australia Australia
I am a C#/XML developer with almost 10 years professional web development experience and over 15 years experience with Client Server applications.

In the past I wrote ISAPI dlls, but these days I stick to ASP.NET, AJAX and CSS based designs.

Favourite Technologies: C#, XSLT, NUnit.
