  1. wow, the site is totally broken under Firefox. I don’t mean “has minor rendering errors that make it less attractive”.

The mailto link looks correct by itself. Still doesn’t work as a link — maybe just overwhelmed by cruft?

    But, just viewing the HTML source reveals why one shouldn’t use Word to produce HTML. (To be fair, last time I looked at the source on HTML produced by OpenOffice.org, it sucked too.)

    I’ve told them they have problems. I’ll work with them to try and get the problems fixed.

    Thanks everyone.

    I was at the library today, so had a chance to look at the site using IE. Quite the difference.

    But at least URL munging results in a 403.
