[bksvol-discuss] Re: ISBNnumbers

Roger, Thank you very much. It worked perfectly, though I did have to put in 
the hyphens. Mike was right; The "cloth" is the hardcover and the "(paper)is 
paperback (I put in both ISBNs for fun; it's l like playinig with a new toy, 
though in this case learning about something new and enjoyng it so much I anted 
to do it again. grin
