Well, in that case I really have no idea what I did that made you think I
triggered something. So... whatever.

MvdV>> It is not a standard.

CS> It isnt? Are you so sure?

Where is it documented? A standard ain't a standard until it is documented by a
recognised body. You as FTSC member should know that.

Says who?

I would be all in favour of using the new makenl and allow -Unpublished- on
entries other the Pvt, but all except ZC3 seem to chicken to give it a go. Sad

Cheers, Michiel
