Ah. Sorry, no offense. Just trying to understand what

I always appreciate knowing 'why' though I understand most people
probably don't care and it's more work for you.

I don't quite understand this but I'll put it in my list of possible
coding projects for later study.

Thanks to you and to Bruce for the information and all the help!
