Already thought of that but we want all browsers to display and behave 
the same. The only way I've found that works the same in all of them is 
using a javascript.

I thought of that too. The problem is that I would have to add a new 
function to the href's parser and I'm not sure I want to add anymore 
complexity than we have too. Not to mention the href parser won't work 
on hard coded links in the menus and jumppads, only on dynamically 
created ones from xml files. This means if you turn off the ads then 
click a link in the menu the ads come back but if you click a link 
within the content area the ads will stay off. This is inconsistant 
behaviour and not really something I would want to do. Changing the href 
parser to work on the menu links wouldn't be an easy task. I would have 
to think about how to do that and experiment a little.

Either way, getting rid of the ads column isn't a big priority, maybe we 
can look into it at a later date. I really want to focus on getting the 
existing site up and running. Then we can worry about enhancements at a 
later date.
