Oy Bev, you're right about the writhing in agony part.   I'm using IE 6.01
on a Windows Me system.

I will credit them with some beautiful artwork and a neat concept ... but
once I clicked the "read" button at the bottom right hand corner of the
popup window, I couldn't get back because they had specified the window not
use the menu up top but also didn't have the navigation system (that I could
find) on the Read page.   So I couldn't explore the other options .... then
when I simply closed that popup window, the other act-e window seemed only
to be one large picture ... no nav function that I could find.   What's the
purpose of that even?

In terms of what I DID like ... I personally thought it was clever to have
that little popup nav in the popup window (but please get rid of the popup
window) ... if it were only a bit more useful.   I like thinking of new,
neat and arty navigation principles, bearing in mind, of course, what type
of user seems to be the target audience ... sometimes ya need a big "CLICK
HERE SILLY RABBIT" button, ya know what I mean?

Anyway, I don't have time to explore further at the moment but will try to
jot down more thoughts for you in the future ... would you like them on or
off-list??   Not sure what's best in this situation but definitely looking
forward to hearing other thoughts on this quite unusual, but potential
interesting site.   (But yeah ... it totally SUCKS nav-wise at the moment!
