Thanx every one.
The reason (one of them anyway) we want the information viewable on the web site as opposed to just being down-loadable is because the client sells "advertorials", thus he is looking for a way to increase the advertisers value for mony, plus he wants to link from his companies web site to the companies (who do the advertorial) web sites. If they don't have a web site, he will sell them one.
He is coming in to see me next week to tie down prices etc, and he has a huge client base of customers that don't have sites.
Ever met a guy who could sell ice to Eskimos?
he is one of those, but is a good sort and is well respected in NZ. I know he will be bringing in some good business for me.
I like JKD's ideas, I will explore that avenue. (Don't want a job in NZ do you.
Thanx everyone for the feed back......
........I know what I need to do...
...............Build it, ... and they will come!
