Thanks, guys.

That one [more than] covers the landscape. I'm using it.

On a side note, d'ya ever get the impression that some organizations don't WANT you to find your way around their sites?
Or that others are so enamored of their spiffy look-and-feel that they want to trap you into spending as much time as possible gazing upon its magnificence?

It is a very busy page, though, and someone coming to the page cold (without your instructions) might struggle to find the HSM link. How about this belt-and-braces approach:

"From the row of device categories (PIN Acceptance Devices, Non PED, HSM, SCR), select HSM."
