Hi Chris

No I had no idea, and I'm not sure I understand why this addition has been
included.  I was only trying to take the first and second name of two
players, not an entire page, to paste.  It got so upset that my machine
crashed, so I lost my text.  Fortunately I had done a save just before going
to the site, but it's really irritating nevertheless.

Well very confuzzled indeed, but never mind (smile).
