Web site is launched!

After much faffing around with formatting scanned images and photos, the new web site is here.

Many thanks to Vanessa for patiently letting me borrow her laptop for browser compatibility testing. I did spend far too much time making sure everything looks ok even in Internet Explorer 6 (assuming some people still use it), so fingers crossed!

Anyway, please let me know what you think, and report any browser issues, like pictures or text not appearing in the right place.
