Chuck,

You're right about some of those clever users!  The menus we're using are
home grown, and we've restricted the use of the sys req/attn key because of
that.  So far we've only got 3 3rd party packages, and we've been able to
pick specific options from there package and put them on one of our menus,
so we haven't had to worry about how their menus are set up.  Thanks for the
warning, though!

Jill
