How do you stop someone from left clicking on one of your images and dragging it to their desktop or folder of choice? I have my site right click protected and image tool bar protected, but it doesn't stop this.

You can't, no. That's a browser control which should not be able to be changed by a website.

Different topic: why do so many people not understand what the Accessibility forum is for?

Pardon me Mike - I'm new to this forum and wasn't sure where to post this issue.

Pardon me Mike - I'm new to this forum and wasn't sure where to post this issue.That particular comment wasn't aimed directly at you. This particular section tends to attract a variety of topics, few of which are actually related in any way to accessibility issues.

If a question doesn't clearly fit in another category, the Other (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12) forum would seem a very appropriate location.
