Re: my last post on MySQL Workbench, you'll want to load it up, and go 
to the Database menu, then go to "Reverse Engineering", fill in your 
database details, and keep clicking next selecting all the bits and bobs.

At the end of it, you'll have all 80 odd table shown in the screen, you 
can drag and drop these round the screen, clicking the arrow at the top 
right of each table will show it's contents. Then it's up to you to 
somehow order them, move em round etc. till it looks pretty. If you 
manage it, I would be *very* interested in seeing the final, pretty result.
