            Yes, but... Sometimes it is interesting to make something using just the HTML, even no pictures. Have you ever think about this?

            Saved me light years on that aspect as well. We incorporated it when we expanded our business, and it went very smooth. Now in terms of the rest of the growing pain issues that come along with expansion...that's another story =)
