OK. What did ticstrings contain in the demo I wrote for you?

[When somebody who is trying to help you asks what the value of
an object was in your program just paste the output from
repr(obj).  If you try to describe the contents in English, I
guarantee it won't be sufficient.]

worked, and look at the ticstrings value that didn't work.

What is the difference between the two?
