    control whatsoever over the tools that people use to access the web site.

    Browsers are "someone else's software" and they are constantly changing (as are all their add-ins and hangers-on). Each new bug fix can easily fix a bug that you were relying on in your coding. For that reason, web site development is one of the most difficult types of development. When you are developing normal database projects, you give your user a single tool to open and navigate. With web development, you write your code, test it on a few generic browsers and hope like heck that is works for the other gajillion subsets of browsers/ISPs/operating systems/OS patches/IQ out there.

    I salute you, elfling.

    Words have meaning and your words will reflect what is in your soul.
