I wouldn't fret too much about a sharp remark from Fredrik Lundh. 
They're pretty much all that way. ;) It looks like you already did the 
right thing - read past the insults, and gleaned the useful information

him, but if you can look past the nasty bite, he's really a valuable 
resource around here.
