Post structure

Although there are no hard rules… most posts should be arranged as follows:

  1. Descriptive title
  2. A brief description of what is the post about
  3. The final product (graph or figure)
  4. A “More Tag” (i.e. <!–more–>), which truncated the post and adds a “Continue reading” link.
  5. Code to generate the final product (see below for “marked-up source code”)
  6. Notes and comments
