Shannon...maybe the response wasn't to your liking and maybe JohnG was
having a bad day. However, if you'd been around for a little while, you
would have known that the simple phrase "Frame vs Word" would result in
7,075 hits in the archive. Do you think that visiting the question again is
going to generate additional insight?

What might your response have been if someone, who is new, who hasn't done
the basic research that should have been done first, asks a question that in
the past has resulted in seven thousand and seventy five messages?
