    @irene no, didn't think so either, even if it was purely for file hiarchy at that time.

    Laugh all you want, but this was often how things were done back in the day - each page = an individual file.

    @deviloper yes, unless these crimes are being commited today then 10 years ago it was completely fine to have "home-eng.php" "home-ger.php" "contact-form-eng.php" "contact-form-ger.php" and etc ... each page - an actual file, stored on the web server.

    @devTea inline styling, hardcoded ... well - everything, no relative paths...

    @theKarlisK yes exactly, I meant it's not uncommon to see that crime still committed today...

    @deviloper I see your point, however it's not standard practice and strongly advised against doing it. Back it up 10 years and it was considered completely normal.
