Thanks Andrew, and Marko too, for the response.  Yes, I know the 
Mandrake entry is "thin," as you said. I put the "trimmed down" versions 
of the lines here just to check my logic.

I also must apologize to the list.  When I made the original post for 
this thread, I didn't check the properties of the message, and it got 
sent with some HTML attributes.  It was an oversight on my part.

Once again, thanks for the replies.
