Oh my, I must have cleaned it up a bit too much, hoping that people  
would focus on the issue instead of the formatting of the output  
strings! Did you miss your morning coffee???

Hmm, I must have missed where it said that you can only ask for help  
if you're using the latest version... In case you're wondering, 2.5.1  
is not _really_ that wide-spread as most of the older versions.

Now that sounds more useful. I'll give that a try.
