    Thanks very much!

    You can edit the web page in question. Can I talk you into doing it?

    The web page is on a wiki (TWiki).

    To edit the page, you must first register at The
    questions are not tough. ;-)

    After you have registered, go to the page to be edited and click on Edit
    at the bottom of the page. Make the change, then press Preview at the
    bottom of that page. Finally, press Save on the bottom of the Preview

    Having you edit the page would be good for a number of reasons, one
    being that it gets my name off some of the pages. (My name currently
    appears on many pages because of some "cosmetic" (lr maybe better
    "infrastructure") changes I made.)

    If you want to find out the name of the original author of the page (and
    the history of revisions), go to the bottom of the page and click Diffs.

    I am taking the liberty of sending this to the user and dev lists to
    provide additional insight into how wiki works to other readers on those

    Give it a try, if you have any problems let me know.
