 As I posted on TI-L, I only saw your plea on TI-L. You must have forgotten
 to cc the other lists. I hope that by reposting your plea, you will get a
 better response. Remember that fable about the difference between people
 in hell and people in heaven? They all had long spoons that prevented them
 from feeding themselves. The people in hell starved to death trying to
 feed themselves with long spoons. The people in heaven fed each other with
 the long spoons. Normally, one should be wary of being "taken." However,
 you are a long time member of this list, and we should know you and trust
 you by now.

 Thoa :o)
