I don't want to drag this out... But.. hmm. in case it is needed (and I
don't think it is..) I do apologize.  I checked in on the list over the
weekend via the archives on the website, and I did notice my XML to HTML
post did do some funky stuff on the web... it took some of the attributes I
posted in the email, and applied them to that one post on the web. (which i
found odd).   But.. so goes the life of an html geek fighting w/browsers and
email clients, and well, ie products..

Thanks for the xml help tho Ray.

Happy Monday
