That makes total sense for a codebase that lives on your own machine or a server. But applied to client-side code it means the user has to download a library to satisfy a developer’s convenience.

And so Silicon Valley becomes a kind of Roko’s Basilisk for The Torment Nexus—the act of publishing dystopian fiction makes you complicit, despite your best intentions.

No, there’s absolutely nothing in the spec that says a footer needs to go at the bottom. So, yes, you can have a footer immediately follow a header and then have the main content (I’ve used that pattern for bylines).
