the Suite always requested a tag on a repub. I have always honored
this; not sure I will do in future.
If I ever get time to put them in to real HTML, Chris has offered to

Well, bless your kind heart, Kitty. You are right about needing to
get paid for what you do. It's amazing how that pittance they

I truly enjoyed the writing - and as I said, learned a whale of a lot
doing it. Hope to be able to get back to it one day in the not too
