Subject: [B&D] Trees on my website

>>Also, that drop chart is great! Very clear. How did you create that and
how does it print out since you have to scroll up and down to view it?<<
I have just realised that I did not answer this query. I use Excel to draw
my trees. This has a facility to save selected parts as image files, so I
divide the tree up into suitable sizes and save it as a series of images,
mostly balc and white. These are then forced to display in the correct
"tiling" by use of a table in the background.
It will not print out properly from the website, which is done on purpose!
Anyone who wants to print a copy can ask me and I them send them the
original Excel file. This is great as you can scale it to fit into a given
number of pages of whatever size you want. If you do not have Excel it is
not a problem as their is a free Viewer which allows you to open and print
the files, but not to edit them.
