You're quite welcome.  Glad my leading you to bouncing helped!

mod_rewite is somehing of a black art.  In my experience with it, just 
about anything is possible, yet just about nothing ever seems to ever on 
the first try, and what finally does end up working usually looks 
nothing like what you though it would.

But such is the nature of all black arts.
