Thanks Lee, did not know that. In that case I would amend my suggestion to 
say that a separate copyright statement should be included for the

Also, going to http://kirkholmecollectables.co.uk/add_to_basket.htm 
directly gives the sql error message: "There was an error.
SELECT title FROM categories WHERE category_id ="

  Perhaps not the best way to deal with errors on live site.
