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

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!
