I think you're having slight problems with your infinities there: both are countable infinities and are therefore equal in magnitude. And there's an infinite number of integers, but that doesn't stop you writing a pattern that matches them all. So while the problem might be insoluble, it has nothing to do with the size of the set you are trying to match. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
