Seems that CSS calendar script is only working in IE8 and the latest Firefox
(didn't check it on earlier versions of FF) everything else showed layout
issues. Not bad for a "quick throw together" though.

As far as Semantics et al. The next 2 years the web will be shifting into
newer directions, become much more robust and "intelligent". Obviously it

use view and develop for the WWW. I hope there are some serious back room
