Weird, yes. If I look at my email at gmane or in my newsgroups through
Thunderbird, I see only <backslash><backslash> (that is, just two)... Seems
like maybe there's something weird in your reader -- I can see that your
forward of my text does have the 4 backslashes.
Anyway, I'm glad it helped. One of the things I love about this newsgroup is
that every time I learn something new, I immediately find a use for it. =)
