Best successor to DabbleDB?

(Asking on behalf of my wife) I'm looking for an online relational database service. My wife's business has been using DabbleDB, which is a fine service, but since the company was acquired by Twitter for unrelated technology, the future of DabbleDB is uncertain at best. So far Zoho Creator seems like the best alternative, but it's much less appealing than DabbleDB. I've looked at quite a few others, none of which seem ready for prime time. Is there some other online database service that we should be looking at?

Real-time stock web service

I need a very simple stock quote web service that I can get at programatically. Everything I've found is either non-real time ("delayed 10 minutes") or not programatically available (i.e. an embedded java webpage that only works in IE.) I'd even screen scrape if they let me. I will obviously pay for this service. I don't need charts or anything fancy beyond real time data for any of the major exchanges (I'm not picky.)

Are there any web-based services that will show me what my webpage looks like in different engines?

Is there any web-based service that will image (render) a webpage using specific rendering engines, and then email or display the result? I'm developing on a Mac, and experiencing some weird Explorer 6 CSS problems, and don't have a PC handy to troubleshoot.

PayPal me my taxes.

I am running a free Web-based service for friends and acquaintances. Lately, the volume on this service has been growing greatly. The next step is to move the service to a professional host. I am thinking of putting a paypal donation button on the site to help pay for it. Are there any legal or tax issues I need to worry about? Do I need a business license? What if I want to start selling Cafe Press items or running Google ads? I am located in the USA.

Simple Site Setupt

A family member of mine wants to set up a simple site for his home business - schedules of classes, some photographs, contact information, links, etc., and I have suggested that he use Typepad, which I use for a number of projects. However I think he'd prefer a non-weblog format, which leads me to my question: are there combined hosting/construction tools out there, like some of these weblog services, that have a good and very easy-to-use back-end, lots of design/format choices, but are more focused around a more heirarchically structured, top-down site structure?

Win XP

Two XP questions in a row! Does anybody know how to remove the "Windows cannot open this file" dialog box that offers a web service? I'd like this to act like it did in previous versions of Windows, just going directly to the "Choose the program you want to use to open this file" dialog. Google has failed me.
