We're not the right mailing list for this question. This mailing list is
not intended for questions concerning web development, web serving, etc. We
deal specifically with HTML syntax. There are a lot of mailing lists out
there that can help you. Also, I have a feeling you're asking the wrong
people anyway. I can barely figure out the question.
