Stefano, you must be younger than "remembering" punch cards. I started with 
computers in 1980, and heard that they were in use, but never saw them in 
action. Maybe you also remember "dynamic RAM" implemented with small ferrite 
coils sitting in an array on a 2-D frame?? Could fit a few kilo-bits per 
square meter!!

Bold statement. In fact, I hope you are wrong(!). Not that you won't manage to 
implement it, but by the time it is a matter of "do you remember", we have 
already left the "HTML age" and entered something yet unheard of, which I 
strongly believe waits to be "invented soon". 
Maybe I am naive. I though the same of Cobol 20 years ago.
