Nostalgia

By accident, I ended up at the original Netscape
cookie specification
. It’s now over eight years since I read that
one for the first time. Notice the 1996-style formatting of the headers:

<h2>
<font size="+3">P</font>ERSISTENT
<font size="+3">C</font>LIENT
<font size="+3">S</font>TATE<br>
<font size="+3">HTTP C</font>OOKIES
</h2>

Other classic web tech specs: The Common
Gateway Interface
, Hypertext Markup Language – 2.0,
Hypertext
Transfer Protocol — HTTP/1.0
. I’ve referenced those a lot of times,
back in the day.
