It too also does for me.

So, all that remains is for me to understand why the Bent Petersen 
option, [usenames], didn't work. But now this can wait … a long time.

As for what I meant by the "plain vanilla" option, I think that after 
you have been on this list for a while and seen the kind of things 
people do, you will understand. :-)

Very grateful and New regards
