Actually, all I meant was that my reply was rather perfunctory & superficial compared to your own more thought out & well researched answer to the original query. My tone was meant to be ironic but the irony was at my own expense, not yours. I was impressed by the depth of your reply. (No, that's not meant to be ironic, or sarcastic, whichever is more appropriate). Perhaps I should go back to using smileycons :-)

Rene PS - I realise that your own posting is not completely without an ironic tone also. I'm not getting toey, I just thought I should point out I wasn't having a laugh at your expense. I promise you, I'm much less subtle in that area than you may think.When I have a dig, everyone knows.
