Oh yes, I meant to make that point at the end of my other message. If
most users have broadband and the others have to download a JS file once
(24seconds, not ideal but still works for the worst case scenario) I
don't see it as a huge problem. Now if you are in some domain where the
*majority* of *your particular user group* use a modem... then by all
means, strip down the JS file.
