Thanks for the input.  That's interesting nickel knowledge.  At least 
now I won't be saying, "What!!!" the next time that I see it.  I may 
actually use it in some of my code so that I can impress whoever might 
be reading it (I have no idea who that would be.)  :-)  Anyway, thanks 
again for the clarification.
