RIP packs as binary AFAIK. that is shorter, but confusing. browsers think "*.rip? whats that? *shrug* 'that is allways text..". emailers too, and may look for good places for linebreaks. also the original unpacks, but does not start something. mine (to myself: ADD THE /binary everywhere and test!) saves everything enbased, and wraps to 5-chars or such. -volker
