Somewhat relatedly, I was wondering what's up with the standard of 88 x 31 and how did it begin, and I found something that sheds some light on the history of website buttons. Guess what, it's because of Geocities!
Still no idea as to why it was picked to be 88 x 31 in the first place, but there's at least an explanation as to how it became the standard size!
Discuss anything concerning websites that doesn't fit anywhere else.

Wow, this is super interesting! I never knew about that. I always thought the dimensions were kind of odd, but that solves this mystery, haha!
