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.
