    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Yes, we have already checked that out...when he tries to send the email we also get the following message: spell check halted, do you want to send it anyway. John

    Always a pleasure. Stop back anytime. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> Micro$oft can often be too busy "innovating" and counting their money to answer simple technical questions.
