The program was also making the point that having GM crops on a farm next door could mean that your crops would get contaminated and then you should be paying a license fee.
And then we don't know what effect these GM crops have on us or animals. Farmers were saying their herds had serious fertility drops.
And now the next day in NSW and Victoria
State drops ban on GM canola crop - Environment - smh.com.au
Best I can say is stop using food with Canola present

Friday night - I'm watching Bob Carr saying all the things he thinks that John did wrong - and this from the man that gave us the lousy tollways and then walked off the job. Did he tell us he was going to leave the job at the previous election. Did the Labor premiers in Victoria and Queensland give notice at the election that they would retire young. Come on Labor John is saying he will retire so stop the NEGATIVE nonsense.
Why has Kevin shot himself in the foot over the change the constitution to recognise our indigenous people?
which was about the horror of using the portable guillotine
And in England a man was hung because an accomplice in a crime shot someone but as he was underage he lived.
Capital punishment is not good

I am thinking of future and whether I will go Linux/Ubuntu etc or MacBook
Currently my web sites are written with Frontpage 2000
Sorry purists I want WYSIWYG
This is very sophisticated - I will use to check my html - HTML-Kit - http://www.chami.com/html-kit/
This is helpful
some of these look quite powerful but Html only
AceHTML, a Free HTML Editor
openbexi - very much Beta - strange looking colours - maybe if they
release a working version
well worth exploring - lists many editors I have not checked yet
- hard to install meant for experts in CMS and Java
I tried- bit lost as why it has email etc when Mozilla has TB and FP
Now I worked out NVU is a development from it so I am uninstalling
Xstandard - the free lite version does not enough features - the Pro for
example has Split Table Cell - but why buy
Dynamic HTML Editor
I tried the 1.9 version - appears to be rubbish
would not open an Html file appears to want some file of its invention
to me that is Goodbye
Tried trial version of Adobe Contribute - it appears to have a special
group network purpose and restrictions such as Template comes from
Dreamweaver - you might as well pay the extra for Dreamweaver
This is for MAC - so if I go MacBook I will have iWeb but if not quite
for my major webs - I might try this
So I'll keep looking at NVU - no recent release but seems to work.
Kompozer is supposed to be NVU with some bug fixes
Does allow Template - but I have to learn how to use - currently I use
include page in FP
Does not have image mapping tool for hotspots like FP but does allow
insert of the code - and in image properties has a Image Map remove
button - strange way to do things.
So I need Image mapping - Gimp is supposed to do it - Xnview has a help
page but nothing clear on how to do
November 2007 Some new stuff I will look at
Writing this away from home so not yet downloading
http://www.aptana.com/products/studio_community.php sounds very functional - except HTML editor only not WYSIWYG
http://www.sitestudio.tk/ - no longer developed but write up sounds good and there are downloads - however no help to explain - nothing intuitive about it - Don't bother with it
http://www.karelia.com/ SANDVOX - has try it
iWeb is not a major tool - its really just Apple's interface to .MAC .
You could use it to create another web site but you cannot import already created web pages.
and you need to backup the Domain file else if you move machines etc you will not be able to use iWeb to edit the old pages.
This is an excellent summary Practicalmadness by David Demaree | Regarding iWeb
http://www.softpress.com they have a Freeway XLE free to try and discounts - I got a Serial number for XLE but where is download - so I set a note asking - and it looks like it is a fresh web site - you cannot import - well I have asked that too
http://www.panic.com/coda/ I think there is a free trial - HTML editor only
The news from Pakistan is most disturbing. USA ally can't find Osama BUT can flood the streets with baton wielding police.
Musharraf was speaking about people "trying to upset govenment" - well of course when its someone desparately hanging on to power. And now the great cricketter is arrested.
I have not been to Pakistan but I have been to Bangladesh and the Pakistan generals tried everything to keep control there until India said LEAVE. Who is going to tell Musharraf to leave. Come on George.
