Thank you very much for that advice.  I'm so glad that you are finding
something of value on the FOM list.  I apologize for my carelessness
in not explaining everything to you immediately, and for using a
technical term that you were not able to find on the World Wide Web.
In the future I'll strive harder to meet your high standards.
