    Specifically am looking for a site that gives authors' birthdates.

    Found http://www.famousbirthdays.com it's not too bad.
    And http://www.todaysbirthday.com it's not too good.

    I've never tried including a link before if these don't work accept my apologies

    A good one for historical figures :

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.scopesys.com/today/>http://www.scopesys.com/today/</A>

    Also gives deaths, events, & religious festivals.

    I share a birthday with Galileo, Mrs Walt Disney, and the day Socrates was condemned....

    Doing the search also told me that US sports teams (football, baseball and basketball at least) are Smart Tagged in IE6. Not alot of people know that....

    Tx that was a good one. I want to run a special in my store if you buy a book written by an author who's birthday it is you get a discount. So I need to have a list to start the day. Also someplace to verify if someone tells me one I didn't know. Most of the sites are heavy on music and theater people. EncyclopediaBritannica looks good too.
