I seeeeeeeeeee.
By George, I think she's got it!

I don't consider myself slow, but this one went right
over my head--light speed! Must be the pizza I slept
with last night, or the TV test pattern finally
getting to me.

Let me restate it: I require the group association in
the application I am using NOW (limitation of the software)
to perform certain meta-functions. In the target environment,
the SGML environment, this is redundant information.

I owe you one,
