other than windoze. He fears change so much.

LOL. Someone asked me the same sort of question:

Q: What should i use to develop the website in?
   Dreamweaver, frontpage?
A: Allaire homesite w/o the WYSIWYG or notepad.
Q: Huh?

No need. The website will be replaced some day anyway.

I made a new one. G seemed to like it, and everyone who
responded to the screenshot seemed to like it too. The
only things which would need to be replaced on the new
site are the submit links (javascript), which should be
submit buttons anyway, and the background image. Then,
it would be W3C compliant.
