> Good catch, Greg! Thanks! I'll fix it.
And thank you for doing that, Paul. Just a pointer, though. Please,
when you do such things:
date 2007.01.18.22.52.44; author root; state Exp;
...it's a really good idea to _not_ do it as the root user. One reason
is that nobody looking at the RCS logs will have a clue who "root" was;
the other is that it's _way_ too easy to screw up with the root account,
so you shouldn't wield it for any operation that doesn't require it.
I admit that we probably _all_ overuse the root account, but, if you
find yourself going around maintaining unprivileged _Web pages_ with
it, you're definitely taking unjustifiable risks.
