Hi John, I am going to forward this to my client. The only irritating part is the thought of having to do work over again that I thought was finished, but this happens all the time of course. But my client is going to hire me to continue to be her tech guru/ web programmer, so all changes will be on her dime, not in my quote for doing this website. :-) Thanks for the input.

It seems to take up too much of the page for no real (functional) reason 2) I get a vague idea of what you're doing, but it's a walking in treacle thing. You're trying to get me to understand what you're doing all at once. Better to sign me up with "Are you a company? Find professionals who will answer your questions for free and work by the hour" and "Are you a specialist? Find work here", or similar and then create a program of gradual, easy, hints and tips type stuff, or a few pages of signup that gradually make the point. Think of the signup to Facebook or similar. I don't know if that's all within your remit, but thought I'd contribute that. Irritating at this stage, I'm sure :-) Cheers J -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
