_Very_ kind of you!

: I used to be a lot better at TeX;  this seems to work but is not elegant

I, too, used to do some (basic) Plain TeX (and eTeX) writing in "the
old days".  I resisted LaTeX for a long, long time.

Those days, and that knowledge, are now gone.  The font and graphics
capabilities of LaTeX are simply too good, and there seems to be a
".sty" package for just about everything now (except deeply nested lists :-)

Again thanks for the time you spent on this.
