Thanks Jamie

And thank you to everyone for the incredible feedback - I am writing
privately to you all but I want to acknowledge here how tremendous the help
has been.

The non-frames link will shortly be linking to a properly formatted second
version of the site, I agree that "click here" is downright daft for a
non-visual link signal! I also agree that keeping two separate versions of a
site going is a bad idea. However in the case of Sapphire it is a bit
easier, as the issue is published quarterly and then stays untouched until
the next issue. Once I have the layout for the accessible version in the
right format, it will probably add no more than two days to the total web
site creation time.

Now that David and Kathleen have given me such valuable advice it will take
a while to absorb all they have shown me - however eventually I will have an
accessible version of Sapphire Magazine available on line. I will also have
learnt an astonishing amount about style sheets (thanks David) and frames
and D links (thanks Kathleen).

Ironic however to think that HTML was originally designed to be a
platform-independent, universal language. I guess if all you want is text
then it still is, otherwise it needs a lot of help.
