Hi Beth

I have tried your format statement (from the collect.cfg of auburnbo)
and it worked fine for me (the commented out one using cgiargsize).
The only problem was that the choice of large or small image was not
carried over between pages - this is because size is not a proper
argument in my library and doesn't get saved.
If I change the format statement to use the p arg, then it still works
fine, and you can navigate between pages even at large size.
I chose p for the argument because it isn't otherwise used by the
document display code.

I tried to look at your library but you had switched back to the old
version of the format statement. If you can put the format back to the
one thats not working, I can have a look at it for you.

PS Have you changed your Greenstone at all?
