Well, I agree about the name callings, but bomb throwings can be fun ;)

Naw, Gary, you know I loves ya.  You of all ppl. should know not to take
my rants so seriously.

Well, I don't live in LA.... but I have friends everywhere <evil grin>.

Seriously, I think the final outcome was positive, with an HTML-ized faq
with minimal impact on my time, and the ability to keep a master plain
text file from which the html versions are generated.  All this thanks
to Chris.  However, if I hadn't been so onery, Chris might never have
stepped in, and without his perl script (or something like it) I can
guarantee you an HTML version would never have happened.  So in the end
I think my stubborness was at least partially helpful.
