I've got to side w/Sam here...IMV there's no point of responding if it's
just a guess. (Although at least admitting it is more than many
do...and better than asserting allknowingly incorrect
information.) The response "take it for what it's worth" and "it's up
to OP to decide that" is also worthless. But, doesn't excuse OP from
not going to faq first, either...
And I'll note Sam's zinged me on occasion also when I've been
remiss/flippant/an ass myself...
