Surely you know that, in chain printing, carriage returns between filenames
divorce them from each other so that they no longer constitute a single "set"!
[CRG 2-57ff] What purpose is there in "chain printing" if you're not going to
collect files into "sets"?? The whole point is to carry references forward:
page|footnote numbers, indexes, cross-references, etc -- the stuff of real
books. Whereas your suggestion is identical to TYping each file individually.
(Do you guys really understand what my problem is? Gee whiz...)

I don't know what you mean, "our three-byte characters have always been
considered reserved". What I'm talking about is 256 characters in the "XyWrite
Character Set" -- every char from 256 through 511! What's "reserved" about the
XyWrite Character Set? Anyway, reserved|unreserved is off the point, which is:
SX string concatenations ignore Ascii-0. *Evaluations* (in$tring or
containment evals) for Ascii-0 *do* work, as my code examples demonstrated. I
suggest that you forward my code examples as part of your "bug report"; maybe
the recipient will actually run them.
