Thanks Kay, although I would call it a feature <grin>. I didn't mention
it because I tried it on my Mac and it didn't work correctly. Glad to
hear it works on Wintel. So, for AOL users, that may be the best way. If
you are not on AOL, a real IRC client is probably much better because
the Java applet is slow.
