The best way to use the FAQ is to read or at least skim through
the *whole* thing from top to bottom.  Unwillingness to do so 
indicates you don't value the time of those of us who try to help
others in this newsgroup, and you may encounter some reluctance
from us to help those who won't help themselves.  

Please read the FAQ before posting questions.  That's good advice
for anyone who is new to this group.  It doesn't take long and the
information will go a long way towards helping you understand the
language and community.
