Thanks. Forrest/forresters get that credit. :-) I'm glad though, 'cos I
think that there are times when a pleasing presentation does open minds to
the presenter. I've tried to put as much information out as possible, and
will (over time) whittle it down to the most important first.

Love the idea. Nick keeps telling me this also, and I laugh 'cos I know I
keep trying to click on those icons also. I'll get there, it is quite

Funny, the skin doesn't seem to bother me (Mr Modem user). The top comes
down very fast. I'm not sure the skin is as 'heavy' as you think. That, or
I've just gotten used to mollasses...
