Gee, I somehow missed that attachment.  Time to check the ol' seat to
connection I think.  I'll apply that patch and see how things go.

Yes, the nested include elements were what I meant.  I wasn't aware that
syntax was allowed, but I like it better!  Thanks for the unintentional

BTW, I slapped together a "cab" task similar to the "zip" and "jar"
tasks in case anyone is interested.  It only runs on WinDoze and
requires the external cabarc util.  I hate the necessity, but cab files
are the only way I know of to deliver signed applets to IE.
