Thanks for the explanation... this is helpful.

So it sounds like I should definitely modify the lang-url.mkii file.

OK... but I'm not sure what I would do differently if I'm not worrying
about the \loadmarkfile mechanism... Still modify the lang-url.mkii file?

Given that I'm willing to put in a little extra effort to make the

Good to know, thanks.

I will probably need more help in order to know how to do this. Once
I've finished doing it for us, in .mkii, I'll ask again on this list.
