Thanks, I'll take a closer look at the Realm code. What's missing there for 
me is that I have some special-case authentication - not all access fits 
into a role scheme. So there's role-based authentication for the majority 
of pages, but where it fails there needs to be a check for 
user/page-specific permissions.

I'll see how it goes<g>.
