Good idea, I completely missed out on that other discussion.  Did not know
that the redesign was discussed on another list.

This looks much better!  As I mentioned in my email to you (which I just
sent moments ago), I will not be able to work on the site until January.
That's unfortunate, but I'll try to keep up with this list.

As with the CSS, I remembered that I forgot to mention one thing.  I said
that the cascade will allow us to have a separate printable page (e.g., but what I forgot to
say is that it'll also allow the normal page to look like the printable page
if you hit print preview in your browser (i.e. if you print preview it will look like the
printable page).  One of my prior comments about adding the printable CSS
line to make it printable is incorrect.  The line is in fact already there,
the only difference is that in the normal page we set the attribute
media="print" so it only takes effect in print.

I know in my reference pages I have a few lines for incorporating the
various CSS files, but in reality, we can use 1 CSS file to import all the
others.  Would this work?  Of course, very old browsers like Netscape 4 will
not be able to import the additional sheets, but then again they doesn't
handle much CSS anyway.  Really, the proper method is import, but I resorted
to linking all the CSS files individually in HTML so very old browsers will
be able to obtain the external CSS.
