Good one, thankee. Using the bg graphic works on my jottings pages because I
gave a relative "./Graphics/foo.jpg" pointer. Just checking now with Opera,
I still see the "www" page askew. Blue-bar with most strings embedded within
it. firefox [ and mozilla ] get it the way I want, opera and konq, nope.
tidy? Sorry, must snce i've been wworking on other things, i've lost touch.
