Good point. I added a Using Templates page to Help. For now...<g> users
of HEAD _should_ be reading list posts, change logs, etc... I like your
idea. I can write a routine to throw a Boolean variable on the screen and
manipulate the type_name string accordingly... I'll look at that... I'm
really tired, so I may just get this to you as is and add that later.
I'd rather spend my available time this evening merging my changes into
latest CVS before I diff, then make improvements later...
