It was just an example taken at random from recent experience. I'm sure there is a workaround, but the writer is a software expert and researcher, and the fact that he didn't know about this sort of proves my case - that getting good results out of LaTeX requires deep knowledge ;-) I am sure that it can be made to do great things, but I've never seen what I would consider acceptable results come out of it in the the hands of non-experts. -- Steve [Trim e-mails: use less disk, use less power, use less planet] _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to framers as arch...@mail-archive.com.
