Your help was great! However, I have come to the conclusion that you 
have to also add the "|" to the last keyword for it to also be 
recognized, and then add some giberish for the final keyword that will 
not be used. That seems to have worked for me.

On another note. How can I set up a topic to so that folks will NOT get 
the topi? For instance, our mail list uses YAK or OT when off topic 
discussions start. Some folks have complained in the past about off 
topic discussions. I would like for these folks to have a way to pre 
filter for OT and or YAK. Can you help me with the regexp to filter out 
these two key words so folks who like the yak can get it, and folks who 
don't will not get it?
