Hi David and Dar,

So I wasn't jumping the gun _after all_ *grin*
I knew there was a workaround somewhere, even if it
involved AppleScript. And to say that a few weeks ago
I _did_ point out that it wouldn't work under MacOS X.
About time I replace my trusty ol' Performa 5200 with
one of those yummie 17inch iMacs... *drool*
Anyone have good tips on how to ask for a raise? ;-)

Yours quirkily,

Jan Schenkel.
