I might not have been explicit in my post... The first two words in the first compound, _OleiSharei_, comes from a cheer for a highschool basketball team. The school is "Yeshivah Shaarei Torah", so the cheer went "ole, ole ole ole, Shaarei, Shaarei!" with the Spanish "ole". -Stephen (Steg) ___________________________________________________________________ Get the Internet just the way you want it.
