I would like to second the praise for Allen (being new here, I assume that he is
Allen Briggs...) who has helped me over the last week answering BUNCHES of 
questions for me, an Alice newbie. His replys have been speedy, helpfull and 
never condecending. Thanks Allen!

Also a thank you to Jeffrey Whitehead who provided an answer to my problem.
