Amazing Jose!

It really is much faster now. Great. A few things I noticed:
- the link now sais "add annotation" while everywhere else it's called
"comment". I'm also not sure which word is better but it should be
- we/I need to work on the annotation categories, it's currently a bit
arbitrary and too error-dominant

not quite so urgent:

- while the rollover is a really cool effect, I predict that people
will complain that the cartoon image does not stay (and e.g. can not
be downloaded with right-click)
  The obvious solutions are:
  * quick solution: instead of the rollover, add a button to switch
between cartoon and spacefill
  * flexible solution: make a separate gallery page for each structure
  * overkill solution: make a user-preference setting to select the
favourite style permanently

Thanks, it looks really great!
