it now works without cookies as well (it uses a cookies detection
trick and a get variable to store the session id so session still
works without cookies).

that's considerably harder. The pages I've done so far do technically
work in lynx, but I'd hardly call them 'usable'.
The layout I've used is based on the layout from samba.org, using the
same css files and adapting the same html structures. I've abstracted
advantage of the fact that we have js built into the smbd web
server). I think to properly support text browsers we'll just need
some server side code to choose different style sheets and perhaps to
replace some of the html generation objects with ones tuned for text
I'll defer to Deryck on what the correct approach should be. I'm
completely new to css and js, so the stuff I've done so far is really
just meant for me to learn a bit about how this sort of thing
works. Once Deryck starts hacking on the pages I expect he may rip
apart what I've done and redo it :-)
