============
	Yes, even the "blank" lines are numbered.

	I tried DeStefano's XYWWeb.u2 solution
	but it doesn't seem to invoke the right parts.

	I haven't used XY4 for four years.

	The instructions for the help key needed a few commas
	to work
	and still didn't call up the xywweb.u2 set of programs
	if I understand it was to do.

	I've gone to Boxer/os2 for the first edit and then call
	Xy3 later.

	Thanks for the information.
