Hi Steven.

I haven't done any work on it in a while, but you might care to look at

It uses XML/XSL/dHTML/ and behaviours to impliment extended linking. IN the
near future I *hope* to complete existing sections, and add some stuff I've
been working on covering Topic Maps and Python.

If you have full access to the Web server my own very personal opinion would
be that you should keep things simple, and perfom XSL transformations on the
server, delivering HTML to the client.

If however like myself you are just planning on a site that plays with the
technology rather than deliver serious content to an audience then IE5
Behaviours are a lot of fun :)
