Thanks as always for looking and for the kind words, Ted.

As for the web site, I do not want to take any credit--this is simply  
Lightroom's built-in web gallery. This is why I like Lightroom so  
much: it meets my requirements perfectly and lets me manage the  
entire workflow from the initial RAW import to final output, whether  
that is the web or a print.

Of course there are different web tools out there, and everyone  
should just use whatever suits them, but I do agree with you that  
people should consider simplicity and speed when building their web
