I love the people who help make Fan History awesome with their work. Some of our back end work is done by non-fandom people who come from the wiki community who see the value of our work. One of those people is Lewis Collard. He did a fair amount of automated screencapping that we need to get uploaded on Fan History.
He’s written about doing this and has a fair number of screencaps over on his blog. It is a really great entry and well worth reading. It nicely summarizes some of the major html trends from those early days. Go and check it out.
