Is it worth putting in a help document for the topicname topic? :)

Richard.

I don't know.. I had one person tell me they didn't want to read the
helpfile cuz I was there to read it to them.  So I asked if they were still
in kindergarden (sp?) and needed a bedtime story.

Dont think that was the correct response but at least he read the help file.
