Hi Carsten--

I'm very bad at converting currencies-- have to ponder long whether to multiply or divide...... But when FCP cost US$40/50, the Euro was worth (and fairly steady) approx. US$0.80; now it's US$1.30 (an incredible rise in fairly short time-- thank G*d the Chinese are still buying US Govt bonds, but when they wise up-- watch out!!) So I think you're right, US$65 = €50 (?)

That's clever; perhaps I'll try it. Still, I'd feel a little guilty, cheating HL for their quite good product :-((((
