This web site is a lot cheaper than the million dollar one for the 
West MacDonnell Visitors' Centre website 
<http://www.artshub.com.au/au/news.asp?sId=178660>. ABC Radio 
interviewed me about it a few days ago.


I was disappointed the Google map of the government spending did not 
include "isodollars": like isobars but instead of regions of high 
pressure, this would show regions of high government spending. ;-)

The web page displays with a double heading on the top of the page, 
when viewed in on Firefox 3.0.11 for Windows.

There is one validation error: 

Because the home page contains little information, it rates well on a 
mobile test: 
and an accessibility test
