Thanks, I knew it was something but I wasn't quite sure what yet. At the
time I was thinking OK, this has to be somewhere in here, so I looked and
looked and finally found it. It was something so small, but time has proven
to me that when something like this happens, it almost always is. When I
would code some HTML or PERL, I've had the same things happen, it was
always some slight error or typo. Those 3 AM errors really spank heh.
