*Fixed "Find Team" queries returning no results (incorrectly) when the quest name contained an apostrophe
*Included a MySQL 3.x compatible roster.sql called roster104_MySQL3.sql for creating database during installation (untested as I don't have a MySQL 3.x installation nor will I. This version is SO old there's no excuse for people to still be running it)

*Server Status image now able to be disabled via conf.php for those that do not want it displayed at all.
*Various miscellaneous minor changes to main menu "box", including the guild character level breakdown info, and menu names.
*Change variable declarations to be enclosed in ' rather than " if they don't contain variables (performance improvement - 'x' gets treated as a string and is assumed to not contain any variables and therefore doesn't get parsed which improves performance)
*General code formatting cleanup, eg. remove large numbers of line spaces, correct formatting, replace multiple spaces with tabs, etc. on some files (there's still a LONG way to go!)
