I thought I had put that in. I guess it was on one of the versions I

Thanks for the screen shots.

I'll try that and see what happens. Thanks for the suggestion.

I saw that also.

As I said, I just got this site. The owner had another web designer who
original design and then skipped out. She had tried to make changes with very
little knowledge of what she was doing. Luckily she stopped before she did too
much damage. The original design was done with Dreamweaver, which I don't use,
menus with CSS menus and replace the tables used for layout with CSS.
Once I do
that, I will talk to the owner about other redesign items.

Most of those words were put into the META tags, but I understand they don't
really work the way most users think they work.

I will bring those ideas to the owner.
