Very welcome, Chris. Sorry, my confusion about which character is the proper one. Maybe someone will indicate. --Joe

ps Moderators, et al., sorry I mis-typed the spelling of Zhaozhou's name in the OP. Would you please correct the spelling in the Subject Line there in the first three posts, as I have done in this reply? Thank you!! --J.
