Hi David,
Thanks for your replies and help.

OK found it - 'conspicuous by its camouflage'. I think a button might be 
more appropriate - links usually move your location!

Maybe I'll hang fire on changes and see what happens.

No - at the foot of page

My email client is Mozilla - and I had expected I had expected to open 
with original message showing.  In this instance I have cut-n-pasted the 
original text.

Although I have been online some 12 years and this is the 1st time 
written to one of these lists. I have always avoided anything that 
publicly displays my email address and stick to forums.
