Hi Bill,
Yes, old habits die hard!  I guess I'm one of e people who want to do
"funny things" with some of my files (guessing that most of us developers
need to do that from time to time) so I'm hoping there's some way of
bypassing the built-in versioning.  Looks like I could duplicate the
original file, then work on the duplicate copy.
