not so sure now whether 'povr' or 'povray' cause "a problem", see attached,
'povr' on right.  did a quick check with a Tk text and that confirms the 'povr'
output.

also, Tdg, while testing my macro (thanks, Thomas), found fonts where 'chr(32)'
display as exclamation marks; with both POV-Ray alpha and yr 'povr'.  have not
yet checked to find out why (have to install one or two of the fonts first).


regards, jr.
