Agreed.  I should have included a few more smiley emoticons, and given more
consideration to the small environment.  Unfortunately, "going back and
fixing it later" often never occurs in the small environment and I've been
burned by it FAR too many times.  My impression of Art was the same as yours,
hence my suprise at his indignance over the LVLCHK question.

To paraphrase a statement made by a prominent US politician yesterday, we
here at MIDRANGE-L try to disagree without being disagreeable.  Reviewing my
prior posts, I have failed in that task.  Again, my apologies...
