Thank you, Pharos. This is excellent information.

I will leave this to Adam and Cherie now, to choose the article they  
want to write. They both know is just a matter of  
choosing our first test article...

If we want to go to Teipei, the article needs to be somehow  
associated with Wikipedia I think...or does that matter?

Val ;-)
