Thanks for the link.  As an old military pyrotechnist (In WW-II I was involved in the design, manufacture, quality control, and distribution of Army, Air
Force, and Navy pyrotechnic signals, flares, flash bombs, etc.) and I must report that the link you provided has several technical errors--too many to even begin to list in an e-mail.
Sorry about that.

Because I=92m such an astonishing nerd sometimes and because I sometimes miss my old explosives days, I thought I=92d forward this on to you.  It=92s a great website on the chemistry behind fireworks, written in accessible language.

Ya=92ll have fun on the 4th!  And be safe.
