Thank you very much, both for your detailed reply and your handy  
solution.  It works nicely for me as an input file which I have in my  
local tree and which I input at the top of the document.

I apologize to the list for missing that thread and therefore sending a  
needless request to the thread.  Early on, I did a search in the  
archives and did not find anything about this problem; I should have  
done another such search before posting yesterday.

With warm regards,
