Thanks Mark,

I'm sorry to admit I don't know how to do that. I can figure it out, very likely, but I need one or two tiny hints. Inks and blends have always been mysterious to me.

Bob, I appreciate your suggestion, too. Can I have a little hint about how to apply a drop shadow to text in a field?

Cheers,

Tim Miller
