thanks to all who have contributed and hopefully will continue to contribute. i have switched the format to the more familiar blogger template. i thought the "dynamic view" format had possibilities for collaborative works but it has not worked out as well as i had hoped. and the "dynamic view" has other disadvantages. for example, a longer or multi-paneled entry is not indicated as being such by the thumbnail. and the scroll bar and the right hand tabs do not always work smoothly.
thanks again to all who have contributed or viewed the entries.
