If you'd like to design the looks of the page, I'll be delighted to use it and give you full credit/blame. I'm not much into graphic design, and my HTML is _very_ hand-coded (except for the galleries which are rendered by a script and are even more rough and non-compliant HTML). >> http://www.duck-creek.net/dave/photos/saab/ >>Or, should I lose the whole "Note:" > > No, leave it.

They are scanned at 3200 DPI, which is JUUUUUUUST enough to make them readable, some quite frankly are only barely so. I haven't put the originals into the microfiche reader to see if they're just that fuzzy, or if I'm not quite at a high enough resolution. Problem is, of course, that the images get HUGE if I scan at a higher resolution, andI also don't have a scanner capable o6400 DBP (but a coworker does). Take a look, I've got parts of sections 2 (engine), 3 (electrical) and 4 (transmission) uploaded now. Even with a T1 link, it takes time to move these 1MB files from my desktop to my server which is in a different part of the state. Files will be getting there throughout the day, as I need breaks from "outside work" (trimming trees & building a rock wall, as it happens). Dave
