Thanks very much for all that excellent advice. I will store it up for the next time because unfortunately the deal has just fallen through! Artefaq mentioned that the guy "might still be a dumbass". I leave that judgement to others, but I will mention that although all amounts (mine and his) had great big £ signs before them, he had actually converted shekels (Israeli) to euros rather then pounds sterling. So his offer was inflated by around 10%. He realised his mistake when he started calculating the escrow fees.
He never asked for code or anything like that, I'm not even sure he realised that around 10% of the code was in .asp rather than standard html.
Thanks again for the advice. The whole experience has not been a waste of time, it's been an education for next time.
