    WASHINGTON -- A new Web site hopes to limit social nightmares by allowing women to "register" the gown they're wearing to a specific inaugural ball.

    Jones said he got the idea after his wife went to New York City to buy a gown for a charity ball in their hometown -- just to avoid seeing the same dress at the event.

    So far, inaugural partygoers have registered about 100 gowns for more than two dozen official and unofficial events.
