Ton,

I agree whole heartedly with all of your message,
with one clarification. It is the LAST extension
that counts. It does not matter how many "." the
file has, it could have 10 or more. The attached
file had 4 extensions, only the last one will
determine what your computer does with the file.

Thanks for your vigilant efforts for the biomech-l
list!!
