I'll watch out for a more recent version, then.  I downloaded a copy of
the Handbook today, thinking it might be later, but it turned out to be
the same 4.0 version.  I'll scout around tomorrow.

That would have been very useful.  As it was, I had to start entirely
afresh, as I couldn't find any help.

That doesn't sound too difficult.  I'm currently checking the image
files - it seems that only a small number are too big, but they are MUCH
too big.  After I'm sure I have that sorted, I'll go back to the Form

Just to clarify - I gather I need to add a field <Image> where I have at
the moment only the text/URL field.  I then try to set up the control
for the image so that it reads the url and displays the image.  Have I
got that right?  Test time, tomorrow.
