    Good to see the HMRC code is still being used… it looks like the UI hasn’t changed since my original design in 1999/2000… which should be a lesson to progammers: your code will keep on running far longer than you think, so you’d better build it to last (another version of the same rule: “Write software as if the maintenance coders are violent psychopaths who know where you live.) –Tom
