As usual, you commercial experience is radically different from mine. In my practice, we save lines of code, development and maintenance dollars by using browser-based systems. Most of our clients need *no* convincing that browser-based systems are the way to go, based on ROI of previous experience. The only point I can grant above is that custom code usually faster than browser-based systems, but this advantage is dwarfed in practical and economic terms by the disadvantages. As for "a few lines of code". Ha. Please show me "a few lines of code" that completely implement any significant enterprise application. I can handle exaggeration, but only to a reasonable extent. -- Uche Ogbuji Fourthought, Inc. http://uche.ogbuji.net http://4Suite.org http://fourthought.com Python&XML column: 2.
