Hi Adam and list,

I agree that Firefox does offer the best performance for SignPuddle, 
especially with SignMaker and SignText.  However, SignPuddle should be 
cross browser compatible and I'll gladly look into any issue of 
compatibility.  I have a Mac and Windows XP for testing. 

If there are problems, it does help if you tell me the operating system 
and web browser, including the version numbers.

Just recently, I couldn't reproduce a SignText problem because I was 
using Firefox 1.5, and there was only a problem for Firefox 2.  Once I 
used the right version of Firefox, I was able to reproduce the problem 
and subsequently fix it. 

Overall, SignPuddle 1.5 has been very stable and I intend to keep it 
that way.  I'm working on better documentation and I'm going to redo my 
websites using SignPuddle 1.5.  It's a fun and interesting time.
