Thanks, Mike and Philip, I got step 1 working correctly.

But question 2 (fwd'd below) still has me stumped. I'm on
a Mac, and there doesn't seem to be any documentation that
describes how to go into Offline mode for Mac.

Also had checked out Chrissy's tutorial yesterday, and
couldn't get an uncorrupted version of the pdf enclosed
in it. I had gone through the .flas though, and pieced
together some info from them for myself. :) Those helped
a lot for other stuff.

Thanks for indulging me...my department is trying to
convince our recalcitrant higher-ups to please please
please get Generator and I've been charged with whipping
something together to convince them why.
