Ah. I was the bungler. I was trying ACCENTS out in XyWin, and the Alt key, of
course, doesn't work as it does in Xy4. I *knew* this, and knew from your
on the XyWWWeb page that routines might not always go right in XyWin. Mea
I have sinned. My only excuse is that I was overwhelmed by the bounties in
SMARTSET. Gosh, pa, I forgot . . . But shucks, my workaround works.

If you persist with these relentlessly clear, good-humored clarifications,
turn us all into expert XPLers. Welcome back.
