I've not seen the "full month" version - could you post a sample URL please?

None needed Jim, very interesting discussion and totally agree with the
points you raise about KIS! There's a tendency for those in the media to
go for the flashy bells and whistles, assuming that everyone has state
of the art equipment to view their efforts. I recall about 10-12 years
ago ITV "revamping" their website - the problem was in those days most
people were still on dial-up and their website assumed state of the art
gear and fast internet connections, the result being many grossly
unhappy users. I was always taught to put myself in the shoes of the
customer, something they seemed to forget! Someone mentioned CMS and
having worked for a local authority I can confirm that these are a
staple of most large organisations. But, having said that, www.bbc.co.uk
is an amazing site for the sheer diversity of content - it's been my
home page for ages.
