Impact is a  tutorial that looks at how to make a multistage animation. Once
at the site just navigate to the "advance 2" page and click the image.
Also, the PRSG has a new look. Opinions?

Some links are wrong: if you want to change to a different tutorial
section after selecting one the links go to something like:

file:///C:/My%20Documents/My%20Webs/tutorial-main.htm

The layout looks good, but i still don't like your Pov code formating with
proportional font and no indention. :-)

I know that when I ran a test of the site from home everything was fine. I
guess I did not notice that it was pulling the pages from my hard drive and
not what was up on the site. Bummer!
I also noted that the right hand side of some of the table cells are to
wide, causing a repeat in the background image. Doh!

...and I was so close!

BTW - I understand about the indenting, but what is wrong with proportional
fonts? My main concern is for easy reading...

Code doesn't "line up" as well when using a proportional font. That is 
why nearly all programmers use a fixed-width font, it makes the layout 
of the code easier and far more readable when all characters are the 
same width.

In addition, it will make the code snippets "stand out" more, so the 
reader can identify them more quickly.

OIC...
That would make it easier to read. I never realy notice myself, but I will
make sure that I address that with any additional tutorials in the future.

Thanks!
