Nice handle, sheepishlion! Welcome, and may I convey my awe before such quick & nimble grasp of markup

Thank You, AnnaStrophic. I've actually used something similar to markup on another forum so it wasn't hard to figure out this one.

Welcome, sheepishlion - your willingness to jump in the deep end of the hogwash makes me think that the second part of your soubriquet is more accurate than the first part!
And perhaps we should warn you that a name like that is liable to excite certain members of this august company who hail from the antipodes and a certain province of the UK!
