I've looked into it, and I strongly recommend you
re-examine your design specifications. :-)

It's a lot of work, it rarely (if ever) works the
way you hoped it would, and it is W-A-Y more
frustration than you need. Take the boss down
to the pub and convince her she will like it
MUCH better this other way. :-(
