Thanks for quick replies. Some responses as follows.

Sorry, but we have to have them! It's the only way to have easy access to
indexes. Unless you'd prefer cascading menus in Java, of course (any

My mistake, it wasn't the frame but a table I put in there (tables don't
wrap). I have fixed it now.

Good point George, but I don't have the technology, nor call on a faculty
web programmer's time. Also, bulletin boards are not all that feasible for
PNG residents with the awful bandwidth and expensive connection time. Email
is more realistic I feel - but I'd like to find a technology whereby a
email-only user can request pages and have them sent out automatically as
email attachments. (Any ideas?)

This is the most important part, but with your help, I will get the few
entries I have put up more realistic BEFORE we unleash it on a wider
audience (who will criticise mercilessly if not). Please do alert PNG
students etc you may know to join up.
I'll get back to you in a few days.
