Many thanks, Colin.
It's clear I'll have to devote some time to this. Hadn't given a 
moment's thought to trying out the live images but that's the way to go. 
It will avoid my main concern, being under pressure to solve an issue 
when time is limited. Case in point, the potential "graphics problems" 
you mentioned.

Much appreciated
