Thanks David!

I don't think I've ever been quite so frustrated at trying to learn anything else in my life!  If it wasn't required by my job, I wouldn't have made it past the first day or two (3 months ago).  But I'm slogging away and it's gradually coming together (I think).  I spent my whole day yesterday figuring out how to do some very basic formatting/layout that would have taken 5-10 minutes in Word or HTML/CSS.

People have been very helpful and patient with me!!  Thanks to all of you for that!

And thanks David for this explanation of the situation.
