Clever! Thanks for sharing Stony.

I've spent many an hour thinking of this very thing, so I can appreciate the cleverness of it. Also too, referred to in the same article is this. A combination of the two methods would make a really nice looking case reminiscent of the Form 1 case.

I prefer to know nothing about everything rather than everything about nothing.
