Ok, nobody panic, we'll get through this: let's try to think of this 
as a learning experience. Let's try to identify where we went wrong, 
let's study the few precious posts he blessed us with. I mean like, I 
don't think any of us realized how effective posting completely 
unrelated new questions to existing threads could be. And we need to 
stop trying to solve problems for one another until we've first 
suggest that: maybe you don't need a website at all - you need 
PowerPoint! And how SILLY have we been even TRYING to support 
anything but IE Win ... really, it's just a big pain in the ass.

Johnney G, please tell me you're one of those sociology students 
doing a some stupid sort of thesis, right? Please? If you're not, you 
gotta understand that if you don't chill out a bit, you're going to 
die of a heart attack before you're 12.

<tip type="quick way to get list of form element names">

If you've made a HTML form and need a list of it's elements, you can 
paste this into your document and load it up. Voila:

<script language="JavaScript">

function writeElementNames() {
	var the_elements = '';
	for (var i = 0; i<document.forms[0].elements.length; i++) {
		the_elements += document.forms[0].elements[i].name + ',';

window.onload = writeElementNames;


PS. Sorry if I've posted that as a tip before, but I think it's 
really nifty. And I use it quite often.
