Well, yes. (: But the above "missing" info may be a browser problem, as I found that it's in the HTML source of the page I was looking at - it being the same page you gave. The "<," was tripping up my (Amiga) browser. Checking with the three Amiga browsers I have, I find both IBrowse and Voyager didn't display the rest of that sentence, but AWeb did. These are hardly state-of-the-art browsers, so we shouldn't be too hard on RT about this. Just a little hard. (: -- Carl Read
