I stand corrected Kat. Thanks for pointing out Richard's email address
to me. I saw his URL, and I saw the copyright notice, but I didn't
notice the e-mail address buried to the right of the copyright notice.
It never occurred to me to look there because I was not aware that an
email address could hold a copyright <sheepish grin>.

I promise to look more carefully in the future.
