The project description has changed a little bit. The client now wants a timeline that has 13 lines, one line that incorporates all of the other events. Not sure if you can do this? I am thinking that the best way of doing it would be to change the information source, to make it come from a database, rather then from an XML file. or unless we use one single xml that has flags that will allow you to use some logic in the code when it comes to displaying the information on the timeline? let me know what works best, msg me through google chat.
