Yes, that's how I found it.

Yikes indeed :)

Thanks for your help.

One more question please. When using DateRanges with swish.cgi,
where does the range of years in the dropdowns come from? One of
my mailing lists goes back to 1994, but the dropdown only to
1996. I'm using swish.cgi on two archives now and the ranges
seems fixed from 1996 - 2004. I only skimmed the source quickly
but I didn't see where this range was coming from.

Best regards,
Mike Kopplin
