Ah, thanks for clearing that up.  The "possible exception" thing
was just a guess, because these things often cost money and I
thought there might be a little advertising to pay the bills --
not for profit mind you, but just to break even.  I'm so inured
to advertising now that these kinds of links are ignored and I
forget I even saw them immediately [speaking of hidden links. . .].

On second thought, even if you know absolutely NOTHING about
programming you can *still* do whatever you want.  However, it
may produce strange results. . .  ;-)
