  Yes, I've tried those, and I can get them to work -- sort of
-- but it's hit or miss. I can't get the labels to center in
each cell, so if the printer doesn't feed exactly right, some
labels are off, because they were right on the edge. And it took
most of a day to get it that good.

  That's an idea I'll have to try -- just might work. The other
thing I was playing with was doing it in Ventura, which I got
awhile back, but haven't learned yet. Made the label sheet okay,
but haven't figured out how to load the mail list into them so
far -- they just sort of get appended to the bottom of the label
page, as far as I can see. But maybe a dot matrix emulation will
work in XY. Sigh! Makes me wish I hadn't sold my C.Itoh printer!
