Hi, In answer to the actual question here, I have no clue. I've just been googling too, and have come up with nothing significant. Just thought I'd reply to say that I'd be happy to help out wherever I can if you don't have a mac there to test on. I'm far from a coding genius as you probably gathered from my first post to the list, but I'm fairly savvy with mac OS. If there's anything I can do to check this out for you now, or any testing etc needing to be done at a later date, feel free to give me a shout on or off list.
