Thank you for your response. I have also thought about that but felt
it was a kludge. I have browsed the archives and
found several related topics. Some of the suggestions were even made
by you. :) I should have checked it first before posting here. I'll
try doing some of the suggestions and get back to you if I found
something that worked or found none that did.
