SignPuddle 1.5 is an excellent program and it is great that it is  
cross-browser and cross-platform...It seems to be quite stable...

But as you say above, Steve, when using SignMaker, which creates the  
signs, and when using SignText, which is creating sign documents,  
Firefox works best...

It is snappier and easier to create a SignText document using Firefox  
on the Mac, than in Safari, which is slower...

Camino on the Mac is faster than Safari too...but for Mac OS X users,  
when it comes specifically to using SignMaker and SignText, it makes  
sense to use Firefox. And I believe this is true for Windows XP too...

And it is free. Download Firefox for both Mac and Windows at this web  

Download Firefox

There is really no reason not to use it...

Val ;-)
