I'm glad the penny finally dropped. You may have been treated to a 
modest display of exasperation, but please be assured you have not yet 
seen anything remotely like temper from me :-)

The thing I found difficult to understand was, given your assertion on 
April 9 "But I am persistent. And I have built dozens of Web site with 
images" that you hadn't already addressed these issues. I was clearly 
assuming too much knowledge on your part.

Hooray! You got it! Your persistence finally paid off, well done!
