True, that would be one option, but I have yet to find a good tool for 
automatically generating a sitemap, and I change things around too often 
to have to do it manually each time. :)

The main problem I have is a section of 450+ files which aren't directly 
linked anywhere as they're opened via javascript popups, and they'd make 
a sitemap far too huge to be much use as well.

Thanks for your comments, though, in regards to the advantages and 
disadvantages of http indexing. :)
