Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

You may remember when the world was divided between communism and capitalism, and when the Chinese were communists. The Chinese still call themselves communists, but now they?re also capitalists.
 
In fact, visit China today and you find the most dynamic capitalist nation in the world. In 2005, it had the distinction of being the world?s fastest-growing major economy.
 
China is the manufacturing hub of the globe. It?s is also moving quickly into the highest of high technologies. It already graduates more computer engineers every year than the United States.
 
Its cities are booming. There are more building cranes in use today in China than in all of the United States. China?s super-highways are filled with modern cars. Its deep-water ports and airports are world class. Its research and development centers are state of the art. At the rate its growing, in three decades China will be the largest economy in the world.
