Apologies, this is actually more powerful than my solution which 
only addressed the immediate concern of  printing decreasing 
lines. This of course covers both sides of the triangle. 

It was only when I thought that it should be possible to do both 
in one loop that I came up with the same solution! :-)

The question for Jared is do you understand how it works?
That is probably more important than getting it to work!
