Firstly, you are using the 64-bit version, which I am not, so is there a 
difference in the coding in the apps? And secondly....

...this is strange (as far as I am concerned): having the links pointing

shown in TB.

Or, thirdly, is this because you are using TB v3.1 which is yet to "hit 
the market"?

The mind boggles..... :-)
