Wow thanks Sarah that is huge! I didn't see that anywhere in the docs  
but I probably didn't look closely enough.

But no I have an odd thing happenning. I can only set columns widths  
up to 120. Anything over is interpreted as width-120 so that if I set  
the width to 125 I get a column 5 pixels wide. Odd huh? There is  
probably a max width for the columns property I need to set. I will  
dig around. I am going to have to get used to that again.

Viva le Hyperca... err....  REVOLUTION!
