No offense intended, but can we please not quote the whole digest when 
replying. Half of the digest that arrived here this evening contained 
the above response and an entire digest as a quotation. It's not the 
bandwidth that bothers me, it's the time to sift through it, only to 
find the above. I have limited time to review the wisdom on the list, so 
please be considerate when hitting the "reply" button ;-)

Have a great evening folks.  :-)
