Don't! Your efforts are not wasted. Someone may well have learned more about PARSE as a result of it. Reminds me of a story a pilot once told me about "flying the seatbelt". That's when the seatbelt gets caught in the door and when you're up in the air it starts rattling like mad and you start freaking out looking around for the problem and you end up "flying the seatbelt", instead of the plane, so you end up plowing into a mountain! :) Even pilots fly seatbelts occasionally. (How's that for a cheery anecdote?)
> I formally apologize for the Feedback messages I sent.
No apologies. That's what feedback's there for, but I think we could/should have spotted that earlier and saved you some frustration. :-) Hmm.. I suppose I should see if any bug reports were filled out on this one. (Yep) Well -- all's well that ends well.

Hey, Gabriele has magic SELMA confusing powers! -jeff
