That is fantastic!!! That is exactly what I am dreaming of. I will send
you a source code for XHTML and CSS used to produce TeX web-page
It has to go via private e-mail because due to security reasons the 
mail server is stripping attachments from e-mails which are coming to 
SwIG mailing list. Just edit at your liking and send me back.

I also forgot to ask people what would you like to see after the Java
Applet talk? Andrey's question about editors and TeX is fantastic. 
Actually that was the second lecture in the semi-advanced mini TeX 
course I prepared but I have far more interesting things to talk about.

Also in order for us to include more people in creating department 
documentation and resources 60 minute lecture about XHTML and CSS would
be a good thing (in my point of view). That should be delivered by one
of our graduate students. By the way I think it would be very good 
idea that we make all of our graduate students create their own
web-pages and put their CVs and other documents on it. In this country
we call that professional development (this is not really something 
that they learn by writing dissertation and passing Ph.D. quals).

P.S. If we get that web-sever for the department use I would really try
to do something more serious and start putting resources for Dynamical
Systems on our machine. The dream is that we become a goto place on the
Internet for the information about Dynamical Systems. Once people hear 
about it they will be feeding us information the same way big shoots 
are getting info from their pears, co-workers, and Ph.D. students. I
really can not promise that my next paper will go to Acta but the above
is actually duable for bunch of clever people.
