Pigment Database Changes Coming

I am revamping The ArtIsCreation.com Color of Art Pigment Database.
There will be a complete design change and typo corrections along with some new pigments and other new useful stuff. Please bear with me during the reconstruction process as some of the updates will take time and you may experience some glitches as I work out the bugs and refine the design. I should hopefully have the new site up by the end of the month.

I'm aware that currently there are many broken links in the database tables pointing to some extra information on particular paint or pigment products. Due to circumstances beyond my control most of the broken links are to specific information or pages on the Dick Blick Art Materials site. These should all be corrected and working good when the site is updated. Until then, if you are looking for more info on a specific paint or pigment product, the Dick Blick Art Materials site has a wealth if information. They have will have more relevant info as to a specific paint brand or pigment product they supply.
Most other links going to to pigment and paint information that is off the artiscreation.com site are still working fine.

I apologize to all those that have wrote me and not received a response. I appreciate your comments and suggestions. I have been very busy with personal things and other commitments and find it hard to find the time to respond to all emails and messages. I will try to do better in the future.
Thank you all!

I am finding your database very useful. I just discovered it and don't know whether I am looking at the revamped version or not. What would make the database more useful than it already is, is to be able to sort by column. Specifically, I would like to sort by opacity, then by toxicity. If you were to provide a downloadable XLS file in addition to the HTML, then the user could sort it him/herself without your having to do sorting code. In any event, thanks for your effort.

...sorry for the unforgivable late reply, but I've been consumed by personal issues..
Your are still seeing the old site, I'm having some problems insuring browser compatabiity with the newer disign. Try accessing the free book page and let me know if you have any issues on speed, navigaton or other comments...
as to your request; I difinatly what to add sort capability to the pigment database, but unfortunately is is easy to say hard to do...!
.....If you know anything about how to make the code to sort tables, let me known.
Everthing I've researched on that subject requires complex coding in PHP, and other sever side complexities........that I am trying to learn, but may take me time to implement.
Thanks for you're comments. ...
