      Thank you very much for the selection of websites in the attachment, Tarana.
      It is very useful.

      Attachments are not allowed on the list but I will try to upload the file on
      our yahoogroups area, if it is OK with you. Then people can access it from
      there.

      Thanks again, Tarana
      Sophie
