Mark Stephens of IDR Solutions in London has been helping me tremendously by making suggestions as to how I might improve my web site and by writing a bespoke iBegin® Reader around his JPedal pdf viewer. iBegin® on the internet is slowly becoming a reality thanks to Mark's efforts and I'm extremely grateful to him.
