Thanks, Shawn; now if you'd just convince the casual "we just want to update a couple of pictures and some contact info" folks that they need to pay for whole new website, we'll be all set to go :)

Really? Why? I've not heard that from anyone else here (or anywhere)...

This is going to be hard to nearly impossible to do. This is exactly why
one should not put everything in a Flash movie (and it is more properly
called a Flash movie instead of a Flash site).

My advice is start over with HTML and CSS, which are designed to be
platform-independent and will work even on platforms that Adobe doesn't
think it's in their best interest to support.
