I don't expect to do anything complicated. I'm not a web developer but
I am familiar with some web development. If there are any issues in
particular browsers that can be worked around, please let me know.

At the moment (and all yesterday) I'm bashing my head against a wall
because of Makefiles and sed being awkward. I've worked around the sed
issue by not using sed and rather using multiple files + cat which
should be much simpler. So, now I just have a Makefile issue. :/ I
have to stop myself from saying "I would have had this done yesterday
morning if I'd been using PHP" in my head. Even shell would be easier.
