yeah, it's been pointed out :) [quite tactfully, considering what a
dopey mistake *that* was]

as I mentioned in a less noticeable follow-up to this message, it's not
ready. I was hasty in posting this request. fortunately, I've gotten
some good feedback I can incorporate into fixing the existing dumbitudes
in the site

exactly; that's really the direction, but I'm going to focus on the look
and feel after I get the basic technical dumbness out of the way

I admit to being font-challenged, as in, I have my favorites, and tend
to see every problem as a nail 'cause I own a hammer. much to be
considered here in fontland, I agree.

glad that came through. and didn't just look like an accident in a
typesetting room.

y'know, if that were Euros instead of $ . . .

I appreciate the cents. and sense.
