You just gutted your own argument. > Paul, believe or not, I am not an IBM technical support representative. If you want to report a defect against an IBM product, then do it via the defined IBM support process. For example, if you are talking about lotus Symphony, then there are free support forums at http://symphony.lotus.com. However, if you want to report a comment on the ODF standard, then do so via the defined OASIS public comment process. Reporting defects to me on this list is never appropriate. I don't give random list trolls a higher level of service than I give paying IBM customers. -Rob
