I'm pleased that this has worked out for you.
On the other hand, I rather hoped it wouldn't.
The reason being - for which I hope you'll forgive the dubious sentiment in
the previous sentence - is that I am planning to customise Diagela in much

DSClass and DType entries in my modified PDiagAtt entries.
It seems that your mailer reports on everything - any problems with this
Any other useful tips to pass on ?
