Thanks!  I'll fix that.  On a related note, is it harmful to have the
latest/README file together with setup.exe in the "empty temporary
directory" for an internet download?  I instruct users to download
both files, but I don't say whether to get rid of README before
Internet Setup can begin, in case both files were downloaded to the
same directory.  DJ, what's your forward-looking statement about that?

Cheers,
David
