Robin,

I can't answer your question but I'd kindly ask you to please not reply to an 
existing message and then delete the subject and message body as if you were 
starting a new thread. This is called thread hijacking and though it might 
appear to you as if you've started a new post, there are hidden links to the 
previous thread that ties your new subject post to it. However, those of us who 
read this list by thread will see your subject but the other five messages in 
the thread will be about the subject you hijacked. 

I noticed that you hijacked two different threads and wanted to explain this so 
you could avoid it in the future. 

To start a new thread, you need to create a brand new message as opposed to 
replying to an existing one and deleting its content. 

Thanks.
