There is no reason why they should oppose one >another. If the "order magicians" would actually retreat to their own island, I would agree. Instead they seem quite intent on specifying their will and creating markets where order itself is highly valued. Setting values for a market is difficult in theory but easier in practice, especially given the participants in this exercise. On the bright side, I think the "chaos magicians" are far likelier to find this amusing. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com -- http://monasticxml.org
