Oh, also, I forgot to mention:

A big part of the reason we waited this long to do more detailed technical charts (aside from the daunting amount of data entry), was some of the technical hurdles involved in the database design and display of the information. One of those hurdles was figuring out how to squeeze a table with so many extra columns into a fixed-width web page of average size.

The solution we ended up with was one where each table, when it ends up being wider than the page, has a button in the upper right-hand corner. When you click on that button, the table slides over, revealing the remainder of the information. It's roughly the same as having a window with a horizontal scroll bar, but perhaps just a bit more elegant.

In addition to that, we also added resizable columns, so you can move things around if they don't look quite right to you, or if you want to squeeze more columns into a single view.

There's also a printer icon, which will allow you to view the entire table on a printed page. Just be sure to switch your print orientation to landscape, to ensure that it all fits.

Thanks again for the positive feedback!

Regards,
Jonathan Atkinson

A job change cut in to the amount of time I can spend on this site, but as someone who has been on it and watching it develop for the past several years, I can tell you Jonathan's work to improve this and always make it relevant is really terrific. As for wether it will help your dancing, it's hard to imagine it wouldn't ... especially because you can interact so much in this format and get good ideas, advice, interpretations, pointers, etc., from excellent sources who love to help on this site. You'll see the occasional testy debate, but those are OK, too, and you always learn something from them. Some time in the future, I hope to be on the site as much as I used to be, which was pretty much every day for years!
