    Awesome, Gwen, this is exactly what I have been hoping to find! Mind if I copy your example ... and dare I say .. paste this "exciting post" to my page??? Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, or how does that saying go again -- at any rate: consider yourself thanked a bunch or bunches!! ;)

    Very thankful, Goldie
