	<h2>What is Common Lisp?</h2> 

	<p>Common Lisp is the modern, multi-paradigm, high-performance,
	  compiled, ANSI-standardized, most prominent (along with <a
	  href="http://www.schemers.org/">Scheme</a>) descendant of the
	  long-running family of Lisp programming languages. Curious? <a
          href="http://cliki.net/Getting%20Started" class="emphasize">Click
	  here to get started!</a>
	</p>

	<p>Common Lisp is known for being extremely flexible, having
	  excellent support for object oriented programming, and fast
	  prototyping capabilities. It also sports an extremely powerful
	  macro system that allows you to tailor the language to your
	  application, and a flexible run-time environment that allows
	  modification and debugging of running applications (excellent
	  for server-side development and long-running critical
	  software).</p>

	<p>Common Lisp is a multi-paradigm programming language that
	  allows you to to choose the approach and paradigm according to
	  your application domain.</p>
