I appreciate the comments, Carl. My site's goal is a bit fuzzy. We don't
have a shopping cart. Building an online catalog for even a small
portion of our products would be very expensive. Our site is more of
an "institutional" ad. And we are aiming more at corporate buyers
looking for hard-to-find products. We get a fair amount of business
from such buyers. From what I can tell, we probably do better than 90%
of sites like ours.

Retailing is what I like to do...in a conventional store.

But selling on the web can be a pain at times.
