Hi Gavin,

For the front page quote, is shortening Mark's short version even 
further ok?  Something like:

"My firm chose PostgreSQL to replace a legacy Oracle system on a 
national high-traffic database driven website.  Choosing PostgreSQL has 
paid off for us and our client, and it is our database of choice for web 
application development."

I think it flows better and doesn't sound over-technical.  What do you 
reckon?

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
