I'm looking into this now...like the idea of the physical/virtual tie
in greatly. Smells expensive though :(

No, though users are able to highlight portions of text to
read....this is the approach I'm encouraging since it is a more direct
interaction with the text.

Couldn't figure a way to do this, so the whole context menu function
is disabled except on pages such as the files area, where other users
are likely to need it. There's a dual purpose for context disabling,
the pupils will be context-clicking on the agent to access a
navigation menu, so its important that inaccurate clicks to the side
of it have no effect...the other reason is simply down to early mouse
users and button confusion.

None..AFAIK :/

This is, I think, Jonathon's original point, my delurking was intended
to support him...I found some of the other responses rather glib,
considering the marked absence of actual inclusive content online.

(Unfortunately my hosters have chosen to switch servers tonite so the
site will be down for a while (<24hrs I hope) if anyone is trying to
view it.)

Thanks for the references provided,
