Reverse-Engineering the WB&B website

The corporate web page for Whitney, Bradley & Brown (WB&B) Inc. is a site intended to showcase the skill sets of a local consulting firm.  It is a static set of pages displayed in a basic theme accessed through CSS.  There are a number of classic, businesslike styles used, for example:

 

.style15 {

            text-decoration: none;
            color: #FFFFFF;
            font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
            font-size: 9px;
            font-style: normal;
            line-height: normal;
            font-weight: normal;

 

Images on the company masthead switch periodically, animated through Flash.  There is also a map with company locations displayed on an expanding map that is also powered by Flash.  Links to descriptions and addresses of these locations are accessed through the map.  Company product area and example product descriptions are accessed via pull-down menus from the home page.  These work well, and the site map shows an orderly and logical grouping of subjects.  On a site of this type the presence of a database backend would be indicated by a search box, but there is none on the WB&B site.  The link to the site is in my Blogroll.

    Something strikes me as intrinsically funny about the phrase, “Space Consultancy Established.” (It’s over on the WB&B website.)

    I don’t know why.
    It just made me giggle.
