this is a fair answer to my questions, not an evasion -- you're selecting level 0 in both tracks, which is not a bad thing (it's certainly simpler to get right!) The outstanding question in my mind is whether those tags could be mistaken by a na?ve user for meaning one of the other concepts. Is there a way to name the tags to minimize that kind of confusion? --dkg -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
