Will,  most of the above are all excellent points, and frankly, I find 
the menu as confusing as ---, too. Your confirmation helps. I believe 
keeping it open throughout the site could prove to be a better way to 
go, and I will set about to make that happen (along with /some/ of the 
other things you mention with which I also agree).

Not necessary for image replacement, imho, as it does well as is, in a 
Lynx viewer; and, with CSS disabled. An h1 link (blind link so to speak) 
is a viable and probably good idea that will be done.
