Yep, thanks - from www.yourdictionary.com (which I should really make more
use of):

"Usage Note: Its is the possessive form of the pronoun it and is correctly
written without an apostrophe. It should not be confused with the
contraction it's (for it is or it has), which should always have an
apostrophe." - hopefully now committed to memory!

Regards,

Matt.
