These are some of the issues, Bill, which will get resolved sometime in 
2005. As you know, I did not finish the IMWA...I know I know...I hate 
hearing that myself! But it is true. The 1.1 is better than 1.0, but 
the future 1.2 will be better yet... I handed Stephen a very difficult 
job and some of the problems are related to the way I entered the 
symbols, because we have used these symbols with different computer 
programs over many years, and each computer program solved the problems 
differently, and so the symbols were entered differently in different 
computer programs depending on the programmer and their 
requirements...so I hope I can make a better IMWA in 1.2 that maybe 
won't be so complicated for future programmers...Stephen is helping me 
with that...Thanks for your input!  Val ;-)
