Change that last "Jim" to "Bruce Campbell of RIPE" and you're probably
dead on; I didn't frob that bit of code at all. However, I've now tried
it both ways and in several browsers and prefer it with the style
statement, so I'll be leaving it in.

As Sir Isaac Newton said, "If I see farther than others, it is because I
stand upon the shoulders of giants." RT's design is straightforward and
intuitive, which makes the twiddling I've done so far very easy. The
praise should rest at Jesse's doorstep -- and did you know he does
consulting for a living? http://www.bestpractical.com/rt/ for details.

As to entertaining, well, I do try. =]
