Hi, Just catching up with the digest. Rudy wrote: "offlist responses are preferred, so as not to clutter the list with this newbie stuff" These were interesting questions asked by Rudy and I understand why he asked for answers to be sent off list to save non-newbies having to read through probably what they already know. But there are quite a few of us to whom this information would have been really good to know. I am a lurker who reads the digest everyday. I lurk because I can very rarely answer a question but I gleam tons of information from just reading the posts. I am sure there are others like me. Rudy's questions were of a general nature and not just specific to him. In future could we have these general topics posted on the digest? Lisa.
