Thanks, but that won't help me.  This would be running on a production 
server at a remote location with ssh, so the only browser I could use 
would be Lynx the cat or a similar text browser.  Yes, I can make 
phpmyadmin available remotely but that poses unnecessary security 
risks.  It would be impossible for me to run Orca on that server anyway 
as it doesn't even have a sound card and it is impossible for me to 
access it locally.
