Thanks much! I will avail myself of your tutorial.

Actually, the thing I don't care for in the current Newton books I
have is that the text of the book completely fills the Newton Book
window from side to side, with no margin internal to the window. That
bothers my scanning, which is used to the margins we typically use in
paper documents.

Thanks again for your help. I am really enjoying reorienting myself
to the Newton.
