Ah! Yeah, Adrian, I did rework the existing code, but I was using your page
as the benchmark (that's where I noticed the form thing). We can certainly
go back and re-do it, but I wasn't sure which was more up-to-date. Since the
header as it exists on roselli.org uses images that are not on evolt.org, so
should we (the [html] people) just save them from Adrian's page and upload
them? It doesn't matter to me how we do it. (BTW, I'm sure that Adrian's
code will work better across browsers and platforms because it's a *much*
simpler table, but what I did *does* validate. :))

So to get the code from Adrian's site to evolt, do we (the [html] people)
just need to grab the appropiate page and cut and paste our way through the
templates? Or do you have the separate pieces in discrete files already,
