First a couple of points about protocol on this list.  Please don't
top post. Insert your reply into the previous message at appropriate
points.  Also please post in plain text not html.  Thanks.

You type it and hit enter.  That is after logging in as I explained previously.
Now you can see the benefit of inserting replies.  If you had done
that my previous post explaining what to do would have been just above
this so you could easily find it.  Now you are going to have to scroll
down looking for my previous reply.
