Thanx! That worked! Will have to scrutinize the script for the secret
sauce. Curiously, when opened in by script, IE, which is my default 
browser, no longer recognizes visited links by displaying them in a 
different color. No biggie. Also curious why others weren't having
this problem.

Regardless, the script is very helpful. Thanx, again!
