Sub menus and sub-sub-menus now appear directly to the right of the previous menu item.

This all works in every known browser and OS combination except IE 8.

Who groups Person (input to select) and Focus (already selected) together.

Scope groups Reports, Ancestors, Descendants, Code, and each Report and Code type now has a mouseover help message.

Details groups the basic chart content options together.

Extended uses more self-explanatory names, such as Select with Parents, Picture List and Difference List.

8 Oct 2009: Related spelled out
Each Related report now has links for each of multiple relations. Each link goes to a chart for that specific relation.

For example, Queen Elizabeth II of the U.K. and former King of the Belgians Baudoin are third cousins, fifth cousins, and fourth cousins once removed. The same is true of Elizabeth and current King of the Belgians Albert, because Albert is Baudoin's brother.
