You're welcome! Normally I'm so slow on the uptake that by the time I  
type in a reply to anyone, there are already five responses on the  
list. Last night the speedy answer guys must have been busy (or asleep).

After I sent off my reply, though, I thought of one more bit of info.  
You could avoid having the script in the group ("set the hilite of  
the target to not the hilite of the target") by using checkbox  
buttons to start with, because checkboxes inherently toggle hilites.  
Therefore, set their icon properties and leave their autohilite true.  
You can deal with the button names by hiding them (set their showName  
to false) or working with their textAlign property and margins.

Glad to help,
