Fixed/Modified in this Release - Technical detail

1.Added class='magglass' to the <area> tags of all hotpic pictures for Safari and Firefox browsers, so custom cursor could display in these browsers properly..
2.Edited 'overflow' Outlines to fit entirely within the viewing window.  When these were even slightly larger than the containing frame in IE, a vertical page shift would occur that would cause the button bar to disappear from the top of the page.  Added 'fixed' positioning to '#dv_btns', '#dv_topic', and '#dv-chapterbar' entries in the TOPIC_COMMON.CSS file.
3.Scanned ALL topics, and " ID='hotpic' " deleted from all but the images intended to display a larger image.
4.Now utilizing CSS3Menu product to generate a button menu.  This new menu is not dependent on dynamically generated content via javascript. Instead utilizing pure html elements styled by CSS version 3.  The menu content is now a static element. The page appearance is now steady (no wiggling of the menu).   This methodology is cross-browser compatible and compliant with the latest W3C HTML version 5 standards.
5.All topic templates modified in H&M to remove old menu elements and add the new CSS3 elements.
6.Popups of buttons and/or topic page images were replaced with Snagit screen captures of the new menu/buttons.

Added <script type="text/javascript"..etc...> to all topic templates, <head> section, to load above script.
Added onmouseup="popcloseoutline()" to all <body> tags. this event listener will monitor each click event, to see if it on an anchor(A) tag and only that.  Then if the href is a full URI, close all popups.  "Jump A's" are unique in that they have a fully defined URI as the target.
