Jeff, Good point--trouble finds many opportunities. I see 
inconsistencies in master pages, get color def errors (which luckily 
have little ramification in this particular project), and have 
recently discovered that if those before me had only used C-head 
level properly I wouldn't have to struggle quite so much with the 
HTML mapping table! ;-) Also working on ways to get co-users to use 
character styles (more) correctly.

Jim, Thanks for pointer to reference materials.

Thanks to all!
