Just out of curiosity, Chris, how is the website itself structured?  By that
I mean are all the cases just a set of static files on the website or are
they somehow being tracked in a database?  I suppose the end result that
shows up in the browser would look the same either way, but I can imagine
that if the archive gets to be very large at all, it might be easier to
track things in a database...  That way listings of cases could be
automatically generated and could even be searchable in a way that would be
difficult without the database...
