Doc,

Thanks for the polite reply.  I was expecting the usual barrage of
"RTFM" style comments, but to be honest, if I spent all my time
"RTFM-ing" I wouldn't actually have time to do anything else, and I
guess that sometimes the benefits of a community if that I can know my
bits and you know yours and we can help each other.
