Mr Somerville's accessable website has been created conforming to common web standards, and therefore works in many browsers on many operating systems. As a computer programmer, I know it is relatively easy to do this, and therefore the impression I receive from your own official Odeon website is that it has been poorly constructed. This impression is common amongst some computer-literate professionals or early-adopter types, many of whom use alternative operating systems instead of or in addition to Microsoft Windows.

You missed out "and happens to actually look BETTER than your own!",
which I think would hold more water with a marketing guy than any
number of technical reasons :)
