Jak, Alan, /and/ Waylan: Thanks for the replies. It doesn't disappoint
me, I knew before I asked that I wanted something that didn't make sense
even to me ... but "ya never know," right? In fact, I hadn't even
thought of simply dropping back to POH (Plain Old HTML), so I am glad
that (A) I did actually ask, and (B) you all came back with the same
solution. Sometimes the tip of your nose is the hardest thing to see of all.

Thanks again.
