I came up with this idea after assisting a customer with setting up a custom email signature. I recently had taken a call seeking assistance in custom email signatures for Lotus Notes. I was all too happy to show off an additional skill set that I rarely use at work. It made me feel good that I still remember basic html code, but what started out as a few quick lines of code quickly spiraled out of control. Soon I had been on the phone for 30 minutes, given (in my opinion) a decent explanation of HTML coding practices, and written far more code then I had anticipated. My personal standards would not let me use outdated code - even though it would have worked work. It was going to need a CSS style sheet and some 'div' tags. The end product was not that complicated. It just took more time and effort then I really thought it was appropriate.
As a result of my Scrooge McDuck work philosophy and knowing that the chances of me having to assist another customer with an email signature are very high - I created this application. The use of CSS stylesheets and 'div' tags coupled with a custom algorithm allows for more efficient code to be generated, by reducing un-needed HTML tags. The small application size make it easy to store and run from a USB drive.
