Hi Bryan,
Sorry I didn't get back to you but I was on
a 4 day weekend vacation. I have to agree with
David Gulley's reply:  

>>I see two ways to go:
>> 1) use a regular internal layer for the 24 isolated nets and then use
>>fills and/or polygons for any required "plane" areas.
>> 2) draw 24 split planes on a plane layer.
