i just threw that flag code in today. like four hours ago! ha. i have yet to contact the "fotw" (flags of the world) project to get permission and so forth. once/if i do, the flag project will stay.
if/when that happens, i will start writing the code for "special case" flags, where there is not simply XX.gif (where XX is the country code). once i do, i will take your "smith" preference into consideration for your country! (grin)
