I would say there is NO ignorance at all. It's a very reasonable 
question. And I would say that not "some one", but everyone is in the 
same situation.

However, I'm glad to get the elements and I'll take them whatever way I 
can. Since Pierre is not online, it's a bit much to discuss other output 
forms with him.
