Stu - 

I haven't tried canoo, I'm hoping to soon now, based on your feedback. It 
would be great if you could take your previous email and create a new 
tutorial page on the wiki [ 
]. You've done all the work for the new tutorial, maybe slap three curly 
brackets around the patch and we should have a very useful wiki page ;-)

Thanks Stu!

P.S.-I added a line for credits on your TryingOut tutorial, a trivial 
update from me earlier left no indication who the original author was - 
for the casual surfer atleast.
