I also think the idea of having screenshot descriptions is a good idea.
I also agree with Dimi here (say it's not so!), having a simple text
file for each shot. I would use my simple xml parser thing to do it
(since it already exists). You create a file for each shot,
'wine_xx.xml', then get the description with the get_xml_tags() func.

The xml file would look like this:

    hey, you can write stuff here..

then in the code, called like this:

list($description) =

Ha!, it seems like I just wrote it all now. I'll add the code, you can
create the XML description files if you desire.
