I must have mucked up a merge when I updated from CVS while I was making these 
changes because all my tags showed // which would mean they were from HEAD - 
correct?  I updated again and specified -r HEAD and now they all show /THEAD so 
I must have it now.

I obviously don't understand something here.  I found what I needed on the Web 
page (the list of tags) but as far as CVSROOT goes:  I looked at it on the web 
and even checked it out but never saw a file called val-tags or anything other 
file that listed the tags.  At any rate the drop down list works.
