We pause for this commercial message?

Thanks for the info -- I can go legit with my copy of TopStyle and contribute to the Red Cross at the same time. Sort of like software licensing amnesty to benefit the greater good. I like that.

Perigee,

...as if Amazon and PayPal were not making a dime off those pages.

Yes, pessimist of the world unite so corporations will never do anything for a greater good ever again.

I don't see you going without pay for 2 months.

I've heard of a few places doing things like this. We're doing the same thing at CitizenX.com (but just for a couple weeks at this point). The $ amount is nominal, so for us it's mostly symbolic. But I think the point is important. It's a statement of priorities.

Compassion over commerce in a capitalist society? There may just be hope.

I agree with you on both the Amazon and the Paypal pages, NF; and I won't for a single moment stop being a pessimist about schemes like this.. as you yourself seem to be... with, strangely, this exception...

FWIW: I started using TopStyle forever and a day ago. It's a great program if you're trying to start implementing CSS on your site. It has all kinds of great widgets. (I only used it for a few months. Notepad is much quicker. It's probably still great for someone new to CSS though.)

I, too, will gladly be going legit now. I should've done it earlier, but a new install on a new machine came at a fortunate time, I suppose.
