Well, I don't know about your NDA; mine is now used by my wife up at the 
University as an example
of English-language legalese . . . I only hope the students don't find 
it as boring reading as I did . . .  :)
[Yes, I did read the thing!]

Certainly at that meeting (to which the NDA refers) I have no memory of 
anything being said about text
fields - mind you, come to think of it, I was so soaked by the Edinburgh 
rain that I can recall almost nothing

After that meeting I 'escaped' as quickly as possible
and headed back to my lodgings for a good long soak in a hot bath; where
