You might be right, Val - you should be a programmer! I'll try copying the
file over to my laptop, which has XP, and unzipping it there.

Well, in fact I'm writing an editor for working with dialects of oral
languages at the moment, and have been for some time now, so once that
starts to wind down, the experience gained will help with this.

To tell the truth I'm seriously thinking of discarding the IMWA and getting
the program to draw symbols for itself. I'll experiment with that and see
how well it works out.
