Yep, I'll give that a go. That seems to be a nice clean way to do it and
I understand it a little better than your first example. :: is a
construct I've not used in php before. I know of Pear and have seen the
:: jobbie before but thought it unique to Pear and not available to
mear mortals. 

Thanks very much...
