    Hi Nathan,
    Looks fine in Internut Exploder V. 5.50.4134.0100 on M.E., except the

    I can check Nutscrape V. 3.0 & 4.08 on ME if you like, also eariler
I.E.'s & OS's if I fire up the other 'puters - right now I'm having my own
dilemma.....(see the upcoming "Dynamic Menu width confusion").
