I agree ... the docs for Emerald UX are VERY skimpy. They don't have to
be pretty, just thorough ... at least explaining how the system works so
that we can figure out the rest :)

Have you given any thought to the 2000 problem, Dale?? It's getting
fairly close, and with expiration dates sometimes set a year ahead, you'll
have to look at this fairly soon.

All this is assuming, of course, that the current software is not 2000
compatible :)
