That's not the post I saw. I didn't rejoin the clip list until June 2008 so
I wouldn't even have seen that one. I've spent hours searching my archives
using every keyword I could remember to no avail. I've (we've) spent way
too much time on this for what it is worth so I'll have to let it go.
Thanks for trying though.
As I understand it, the caret is supposed to force a pattern search from
the start of a line and you are confirming that. I'm good with that. If I
run into another case where it fails I will post it.
Thanks again, Art
