Thank you for your kind words:

Hi there ... just wanted to let you know that I think this is a quality service. I've just used your site to create an employment contract and it works very well. My company develops software-as-a-service applications (CRM applications using salesforce.com), so it's nice to use a supplier doing good things in the same space.
