Nice. That's a lot more helpful than was my last reply to one of your
posts... One thing is that the line I've commented out above seems to
overwrite the previous expression, no? I've removed it from the
Wiki. Someone shout at me if I'm getting this wrong.

I am interested in the answer to q1, but OTOH I'm not so stressed
about it now my matching parentheses have ceased to be horrendously ugly.
