Sorry for the previous post. It works, but also contains some experimental 
code which is no necessary, but I think you will see this when you try it 
out and will be able to fix this. If you do not see how to fix it, post and 
I will edit and repost. It is just pretty late here, after midnight and I 
am a little tired.

Thanks, David
