    Tom: Of course. Care to say which parts of the article you mean? Whether the harmony of a particular combination of ratios translates from musical to visual is speculative on my part; I don’t make any definitive claims of that sort. It’s really just an approach that might help fulfil the third tenet of Boulton’s new canon, binding the content to a particular web device.

    Phil: Thanks, but cocktails don’t appeal. A pint of London Porter will do just fine ;)

    Liam: I’d be very pleased if you thought the article worthy of a second read. It’s long, and some of the details will be new to web people. I felt obliged to explain at some length so that readers would understand what I’m getting at.

    Katie: You’re very kind.

    Barnaby: Absolutely. There’s huge potential in the exploration of connections between music and design. Cadences are a great idea, either in the movement from one part of a page to another, or from page to page.

    David: Glad you liked it.

    Ron: I’d be very interested to see if the web community can use anything of what I’ve touched on and show whether any of it can stand up to scrutiny.

    Tom: Come on, now. Christmas without music? No carols? No cheesy hits?

    Stephen: That’s an insightful point. Could you direct us to any online resources about the harmonic series and where it’s found and used? My background is in music, rather than science, so that’s how I approached them. That’s why I’ve used musical terminology, though I believe music has a lot more than harmony to offer web design. I agree that it’s the application of the harmonic ratios that counts.
