I am attempting to study this code to see how it does it.  From what I
can see of this thread, it appears to be one of many solutions.
Unfortunately, I am not well-versed in this whole application
programming thing... <g>.  I can do simple things, and am good at web
apps, but this style of things is quite new for me.

Anyway, we'll see what I can get out of that, and maybe I can find the
solution.  Thanks for the pointer!
