Excellent, that did the trick! After following your suggestion, to the
letter I might add, I was able to see exactly what the help system was
looking for and adjust paths accordingly. Re-reading my post, I see the
second Q is nonsense- gotta stop posting when I'm tired and frustrated!

Haven't had time yet to really use Boa (this weekend, for sure), but it
looks very impressive- hope development continues. Particularly like the
context sensitive help- moving in the right direction IMHO.

many thanks....
