Unfortunately, DOS batch files can quickly qualify you for The 
Thompson-Ritchie Gentle Rest Home for the Scripting Underpowered.  If I have 
to write something scripty and portable, I will use Perl -- matter of fact, 
I am likely to use Perl anyway.  Although I haven't use AppleScript and 
AppleEvents, I gather they have similar power.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled CDATA debate, in progress...
