Thanks so much for your comments! These are some I hadn't heard before. I just e-mailed the Web designer to let him know.

That's just a list to fill up some of the right sidebar. Won't visitors expect text links to be underlined? I hate to get rid of the purple, as it's the same color I use on my letterhead, business cards, etc.!

Thanks again. I appreciate your help!
