Thanks for that Peter. I think I'll go ahead and order that card. Did you see 
that weird stuff after the "23.95" on my post. there was supposed to be a 
Euro sign there which I got from my KDE's GB keymap using ALT-GR+4, like so.  
€.  I now see the Euro sign on Kmails composer, but it seems to be 
interpreted differently, when processed through the mailing list. I'll have 
to write Euro in future. lol.

Nigel.
