Except that those who hired me to do the work are not the same people who object to the link. The department which commissioned the work (and paid the bill) has no objection and, I believe, supports me on this. It's a delicate thing though, and as I don't want to upset the powers that be, I will bow out gracefully. Annoying, as I think the soon-to-be-ex-Communications Director is behind this... Thanks for the comments. --Chris.
