    Not bad.

    It would be cool though to have 'next' and 'previous' buttons on the pages themselves.

    Hah, that's actually already been pointed out, I haven't had the time to implement them yet, but I'll get right on it ASAP once I get internet at home again, at this point I'm leeching from my school's internet (gotta love masking your IP on a laptop to get the internet, muahahah)

    I think that your complete lack of whitespace between tokens makes it harder for a beginner to follow what is going on. You don't have to take it as far as I do () but a little whitespace goes a long way when used intelligently.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Code:
    for(int i=0;i<10;i++) // No whitespace
    Code:
    for ( int i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) // Plenty whitespace
    By separating the logical tokens with spaces, it helps the reader to understand your intentions or at the very least make complex expressions easier to follow. This is especially important for beginners, who aren't familiar with C++ tokens or used to parsing code in their minds.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
