Hi Ron,

Thanks for this.  (Though I'm a bit upset at the tone, sensitive soul
that I am!)

Yes, the Xenith conversion works well, and when it works well enough
I'll change over.

The ideas I'm picking up ought to be convertible as well - which to me
is the more important bit!

The cheat version was just to see if I could do it and what other
things might spin off from there - I said it was a 'thought project'.

Any other comments gratefully received.

John
