Tina, you are not alone, we had a few designers disappointing in themselves here!

Jennifer, Helvetica and Arial stumped me too! *shakes fist at screen in self annoyance*

George, why thank you! It does scrub well doesn't it?

Netty....I won't tell anyone, promise!

Su, we couldn't agree more and thanks.
