Mary Croft has wished her name and e-mail address removed from the site, after her two years.  I'm very grateful for her work at setting up the site and doing a lot of the initial research links and material.  Her work, I'm sure, has been very useful to all that have used the site.  Thank you Mary, we all really appreciate your efforts.  Regards.  Keith - 14th, July 2002.
