    I could not agree more with your comments regarding Mr. Murphy. It is my pleasure and great good fortune to have him available, seemingly around the clock, on iChat and as a frequent presenter at our local InDesigner Users meetings. And, Ms. Jansen, it must also be said that you are quite the informative and helpful delight yourself.
    Thank you for all the wonderful contributions _you_ make to our community.
