Style Test Area 1
What Is This Mess?
You've reached the GPL website's style test area. This page is not designed to convey any useful information. It is merely a tool that the web developer uses to see what proposed style changes will look like before rolling them out. So, this page contains text that is marked up as being a variety of different things (headers, paragraphs, sidebars, links, and so on and so forth), but the actual words are unimportant.
Header (link, em, strong, both, Color)
Sub-header (link, em, strong, both)
[Portrait of Andrew Carnegie]
This portrait of Andrew Carnegie demonstrates what a captioned image looks like.
This is a paragraph, which contains some text. This is a link, within the paragraph. Text can also be emphasized, strongly emphasized, or both. Links may be visited or unvisited and may point to a position in the current document, which will appear in the document as its own name name anchor. Oh, and it's possible to have a plain anchor that is neither a link nor a named position.
Watch this space for more information.
Bits and Pieces
Let's have a look at colors one, two, three, four, and five, eh?
[clip-art of a telephone]
Hmmm... let's see what a loose floating image does. There should be a picture of a phone to the left here. Also, ordinal numbers: 1st, 2nd, 3rd. I suppose I should also test subscripts, so H2O, CO2, C12H22O11. Does any of that mess up the line spacing, or is it alright?
News items and such often have dates on them. Well, how about July 4th, 1976? Also, let's see what an email address looks like.

Run Away by Harlan Coben
[book cover]

You've lost your daughter. She's addicted to drugs and to an abusive boyfriend, and she has made it clear that she doesn't want to be found.

Then, by chance, you see her playing guitar in Central Park, but she's not the girl you remember. This woman is living on the edge, frightened, and clearly in trouble. You don't stop to think: you approach her, beg her to come home. She runs.

Now you do the only thing a parent can do: you follow her into a dark and dangerous world you never knew existed. Before you know it, both your family and your life are on the line; and in order to protect your daughter from the evils of that world, you must face them head on.
