    They want me to use IE?

    With some sites its all about the COM (Active X) objects, what many forget pre - 2004 and the AJAX emergence is that COM objects where a popular method to provide a web-frontend. Also many forget is that ie6 was in operation for 5+ years before AJAX making it a stable platform to develop on, there are still web-sites that where developed in this transition period, so don't be an ass just accept it load IE.

    Excel Formulas

    you can use the COUNTIF function, and supply an expression as the second parameter, example =COUNTIF(A1:J1,"=3") will count only values that are equal to 3 in the range A1:J1 hope this helps

    Advice required for work project

    sounds like something that Flash would handle, like an interactive video, look for flash games for example, you can mix video with script to product interactivity.

    Sharing variables via AJAX

    might want to try a JavaScript library, they take alot of the pain out of AJAX, my personal favourite is JQUERY

    AJAX - Why XML?

    The original object was develop by MS for there outlook mail client, it was the only Active X object that widely implemented allowing async script calls to be made, It took a smart person to realise its potential and educate the rest of the world. Thus ajax was born.

    I made a min-itx system a while ago, only regret was not purchasing a case with a fanless PSU already installed. I also found the cpu fans are quiet loud my laptop is quieter.

    LINQPad rocks!

    glad to hear that it all worked out. I find Snippet Complier to be handy for quick debug too.

    XSLT and XHTML help needed

    all client side? Javascript? Work in IE only? Sounds like your using and active X object (msxml) to do the transformation which FF does not support. You will need 2 version one for FF and one for IE etc.

    Access to MySQL and PHP

    I'm a .net developer myself but Is this Access database on your server? if it is Acesss is an odbc compitable DB so , just access the DB as you would query the info to a record set and save. W3c has a small article on php and ODBC The long and not so good approach. One approach I could offer is use .net web-service with ado.net MS access wrapper, extract the data serialize to JSON using a library like Json.Net and use a php JSON library to build a record-set and save into mysql server. I assume like .net you would have to make a http Get request set the url of the request to the image and save return binary thats returned, there is a HTTP get method I found at php docs
