But I shall start with just an XML format (first, hold your breath!) and see if I can get some holes poked in that before continueing. Thank you all for your comments ! I hope to get more when I pass the next milestone. -David David A. Lee firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.calldei.com http://www.xmlsh.org 812-482-5224
