Mike, thanks for the detailed answer. Good to know the summary item is
now top of the agenda.

If the approach is working, might as well not try to fix that which
isn't broken. I can't participate in the telecom, anyway, other than
following along with IRC because I seem to have some tech issues with
using both my IRC client and Skype together.

I'm just curious to see what's happening with summary, especially
following the semi-related discussion on font.

Thanks again!

Shelley
