That's OK, Gerry. However, you are making accessing this newsgroup
harder for yourself than it should be because you are using the web
interface, which is awful. You should learn to use a newsreader. There
are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use Outlook Express
since you already have it. Here are some links to information about
newsgroups:

Thanks very much, Malke, for the exhaustive information, which I surely
need.
