I favour #3 like I mentioned in one of my earlier posts - I operate as
a company, and I'm its only employee, and I've made sure they realize
it. The deal itself involves programming their website (mostly server
side scripting) and putting together their existing table-based layout
using css - both of which I'm alright with, working alone. So, I think
that should do fine.

Thanks again, for the ideas.
