Perhaps Andrew is unaware of the XML-Dev policy that silence
automatically indicates agreement in any discussion (hence the number
of substantially-identical postings on nearly every topic).

By the way, I checked the GUID embedded by Outlook in the whitespace
of Andrew's message, and it seems actually to have come from a hacker
in New Jersey.

All the best,
