Hi,

My name is James Ramsay, this is my 4th task.

I actually completed the task this morning before I claimed it while finalising Task 20. Testing was a success.
Testing Environment - Browsers:
- Safari 3.0.4 (Windows)
- Firefox 2.0.0.11 (Windows)
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 64-bit Edition
Server Environment:
- Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition
- Web Server: Apache 2.26
- MySQL: 5.0.45
- PHP Version: 5.2.4

In the testing of the "Help" buttons, the help content in all cases seemed to be placeholder content, however the buttons did link submit what appeared to be the correct links.

Cheers,
James

P.S. I am working on a better document. Should be done shortly

James, it looks great. It appears you have found all tests to have passed, which is REALLY great.

Please upload to Google and I will notify Elin of these documents.

If you get it there before I go to bed, I'll finalize and you can continue.

Thanks much AGAIN!
Amy :)

I have uploaded it to Google Code.

Cheers,
James
