That is what I figured, I just don't know enough to explain that. I'd 
hoped finding FX would help make FileMaker more palatable to his group. 
We FileMaker folks want their support with our web pages because they 
have the current php skills. We are not asking them to rewrite any of 
our databases, but I think that's really what is wants to do in the long 
run-- in something else.

BTW, thanks Marco. I don't speak Italian, but I'll run your reply 
through the Google translator and hope the meaning does not get lost in

"'You know,' said Arthur, 'it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in 
a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die from 
asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my 
mother told me when I was young.' 'Why, what did she tell you?' 'I don't 
know, I didn't listen.'"
