This is still a simple (now outdated) table-formatted page. We're currently experimenting with Cascading-Style-Sheet-compliant formatting and navigational solutions. Flash, Director, AfterEffects multimedia possibilities are great but unacceptable when player does not download and access to content is denied. Thus, we're trying a mixed bag with HTML4, CSS2, JavaScript and ImageReady animated GIFs.

The ultimate solution should be player- and browser-independent. We anxiously await SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) — maybe using XML (EXtensible Markup Language) and/or XUL (XML User-interface Language) so graphics like Illustrator can be uploaded without a player.
