Neither of those were points I was contending.  I expected it to get posted directly to the list; sorry it didn't.  Dunno what the click-thru license was about.  Sunava owns fixing.

I asked specifically why a PROPRIETARY format copy of the document was being requested (by Art).  I'd expect HTML, personally, not plaintext;  I don't quite understand why we can't at least agree on HTML4.01 as a basic document interchange format.
