Thanks for verifying it Paul, that's what I was thinking too. I'm looking at replacing the
sizes via the style runs, I have a handler Mark Waddingham gave me/us on the list last year
that I think I can modify.
But I'd be grateful to see yours too. No big hurry, I just need to get an idea of how to
estimate my time at this point. Thank you very much.
