Sweet! Many thanks. I've decided to mess around with websites. I'm quite 
comfortable with Python (I'm not familiar with any of its web frameworks, 
though), but Scheme/Lisp sounded like it would be more fun. Lisp turned out to 
be an exercise in frustration, and it didn't seem like the game was worth the 
candle. Racket has a much more pleasing "out-of-the-box" experience. I'm 
currently overwhelmed by its framework, but hopefully I should be able to tame 
it as I try to work through what I need.
