I never had any doubt as I have great respect for Robertson's abilities.

What happened is that Robertson gave me a couple of hints to help me
change it to the above format—which I still find a lot easier to work
with as the entries are completely separate— but this might have been
before he did the insert and delete macros. In any case, he wouln't have
noticed the behaviour of the insert macro with the above format and
since most of the tables I am using are small enough that I modify them
by hand I had no use for the insert and delete macros.
