intended it to be a list posting since it continues a discussion, with
latest info, thanks to responders, etc., although not on a very lofty

addresses I'm not sure which list they were seen on, but will post this
message--as well as the final resolution to the problem--to both lists to
which I posted my original query, in case anyone else out there is looking for
the solution that I am.]
