[ppy] good catch, Randall ... although I must clarify, I actually
started a new thread (intentionally) by forwarding the ongoing
discussion, and then modifying the subject line to reflect the
subject matter, and to segregate it form that modified "...
ontolog-forum Digest ..." thread. (03)
I am sending this with a compliant mail client now (Mozilla
Thunderbird 184.108.40.206). ... Do keep us straight! (04)
