Fred and Others,

Sorry it's taken me some time to get back to the list and those that
offered assistance, but I was sidetracked by another project.
Thanks to everyone for the great ideas and offers of help! At this
point, I think that Fred's idea is the best one. It resolves the issues
I had privately about having the conditional text for the other product
in the same file as what I wanted to have, albeit hidden, and it also
eliminates the major problem I had with the conditional text markers.
This way, if anyone else looks at the files later on, they (hopefully)
won't be confused with the (in some cases) double text if they make
things unconditional. It makes things nice and clean!
Thanks again to a great set of people! The techwr-l and framer's
lists are great resources with wonderful people subscribed and willing
to help out! I'll continue to read and (mostly) lurk, offering
suggestions or comments as warranted.
