Thanks. I think I'll comment them out, for now. Just seems like too much
navigation all in one area.

I am amazed at how my question on the vertical line sparked such a debate.
Frankly I didn't care whether it was structural or presentation. I just
wanted to know how to bring the dang thing all the way down. I now know to
look up "variable length columns". I wasn't that 'intelligent' before.
That is why I asked the question in the first place!

Have a great day.

Cheers,
Glenda

I think anyone deeply involved with web development finds them quite useful,
but, even though I also implement them on larger sites, I'm really not sure
if it is a primary navigation tool for most folks.
