Thanks for the note. 

BTW, I can't find `supercedes' in any of 
my dictionaries. Can you find it?

I think that the word is `supersedes.'

Anyway, thanks to your message, I just
learned something. 

When I must/should, I like to proofread
something manually. Computers do a marginal
job with spelling, and they are terrible
with grammar.
