But, Anna FOX, I've been having fun with this for years - which means that I've also made lots of pitfalls along the way. I've seen it done badly and I've seen it done well. And why shouldn't I point out some of the problems? it may help others. If thats a problem for you then I'm sorry. I've added some URL's that people will probably find useful but I have also taken the trouble to point areas where I think (from experience!) that people are wrong. There's nothing in wrong in that I presume? Of course, you can still have fun and learn the hard way. Best wishes, Simon.
