Thanks for the suggestion, Andrew, but putting it into binary format is
just what I'm trying to avoid. I think many net users are not familiar
with, or don't have access to, FTP and thus cannot handle binary file
And also, to put it on SCREEN-L FILELIST it has to be in some sorta
And so I'll keep a-searchin'.
