Misunderstandings in written are so easy :-) I have been following this 
thread for a while and I did not read or understand that either, until 
the last Gary's last post.

One of the first things I was told when I started working in the 
nineties was that "email is easiest way to get into a fight with 
someone". Nowadays email can be replaced with any written conversation 
but it is still the same that it is pretty hard to get a single common 
understanding of something.
