    • Use of icons versus text on showphoto page (famfam icons)
    • Addition of french and german languages which are current as of 2.61.

    • All tables changed to utf collation to assist in proper support for all foreign languages.

    We are also working to improve formatting and navigation throughout the entire Model Center. You'll notice that on many of the page, you now have the option of printing out that page in an easy to read, clean formatted page.
