    You can do up any of my tuts whenever ya want, bro. I think most of them are .doc files but there are a few that are inline, web-style...if you want to do those as well.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Vandy-

    Would it be possibly to provide a link to the original online tutorial in the pdf files? Often there are additional comments/discussion in the tutorial thread that may be of additional value.

    Info Made formatting changes to the first post

    Hello, All.

    Thank you all for your great comments as well as your permissions to "PDFize" your tutorials. I will be working on these documents on an on-going basis.

    NeonKnight and RobA, I've taken your suggestions and incorporated them into the first post. I believe it is now much more "user friendly".

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Regards,

    Gary
