Shortly after I sent this, I realized that there is scripting which is IE 
specific.  I think I will try to convert this to work for both IE and 
Mozilla and post the result back to the list.  BTW, I noticed you added a 
copyright to the file.  Does that make sense when the original code was 
written by someone else and you just added to it?  I'm no expert on 
copyright law so let me know my question is a silly one.
