Hi Deirdre The term "alphanumeric" covers both alphabetical and numeric characters.

Just out of professional curiosity, is this terminology correct? Those two phrases sound overly complicated to me -- "numerical characters" sounds like a complicated way of saying "numbers" and ditto "alpha characters" for "letters." (And isn't alpha just slang for alphabetical? They aren't talking about the Greek character.) Or, it could be accepted jargon. Who knows? (I'm hoping you do. LOL) Thanks, Deirdre _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as Roger_Shuttleworth at tvworks.com.
