Criticisms taken on borad.

I'm afraid I find open office a little buggy on my computer, and given the 
amount of time that goes into producing a document I'll still continue to use 
msword because it works better.

However, I'll take up Karstens suggestion of posting them to say him or to 
upload and he can post the URL to download.

Sorry about the blockage - I guess on broadband (quite wrongly of course) one 
tends to forget about that. Apologies again.
