Very cool!  Thanks.  That's what I like about technical newsgroups/
mailinglists.  Where one person's knowledge lacks, someone else steps in 
to fill the detail. =:^)

I gotta tag that in memory so I can find it again, if I ever get back 
into binaries.  =:^)

(Meanwhile, the problem is often that first partial reply.  If nobody 
knows enough to do that first partial reply... it's a stumper!  Then of 
course there's the folks that frequently in innocence, but it sure 
appears that they deliberately go out of their way to make a good reply 
difficult, posting in HTML, top posting in replies, asking such vague 
questions with so little information that it's impossible to answer 
properly because you can't even figure out the question, etc.  That's 
why, even if I don't know a lot about the subject myself, if I don't see 
a reply for a bit, I'll often try to be that first reply and hopefully 
either give them enough info to at least google it, or start the ball 
rolling with further replies from others, of course asking the OP to help 
me help them, by NOT posting in HTML, top posting, etc, and by providing 
more information, where necessary.)

Duncan - List replies preferred.   No HTML msgs.
