I'm sorry, but you must have never tried to look at:


a year or two ago with CSS disabled.
(Or, under Netscape, JavaScript disabled; which disables
CSS - a well-known bug.)

Back then, the site was made of giant images which were broken up into
small pieces and reassembled with CSS.

So if

If you were to print _one_ page of the site, it would come out as at least
40 sheets of paper, I swear!

Now, they seem to be doing better.

It's _still_ giant images for the most part (rather than marked up text
or even just separate, well-laid-out _pictures_ of text),
but now it's a frickin' imagemap.


At least it appears they have a 'text only' version.
Otherwise I'd like to track down some blind people and see how they feel
about the site.


It's _NOT_ 1994 anymore!  This is getting OLD.
