LOL -- "The lovely meaningless name was" /mi.a.mi.fla/. Or do you mean the whole story? It's a good one to write a thesis on. I myself have never figured out what number "Limaono" is. Or whether any of the numbers are supposed to have any significance other than names. While we're on this topic (The Dead Lady, not Old French I mean), I have a question for the Chinese experts (if any are reading this): Besides being German for beginning, I've always wondered if "Anfang" could also be a Chinese word of some kind. C.S. knew Chinese (Mandarin I think) as well as German. Well, it's time to let the computer get back to work, while I get in some guitar practice. Jeff
