very clever gareth.. i like the concept.. have to ask why the barcode?

Cheers nido. I'm not sure it's common knowledge but every book in the world has an ISBN number for which it can be found through databases: %0D*%0D*http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:ISBN%0D*%0D*The barcode is a reference to this along with the obvious consumer connection. I'm praying this gets chosen.%0D*%0D*

That's a familiar cut and paste response from 99 designs. They may has well remove the report button from their website because complaints about plagiarism often fall on deaf ears.
