Hi Bones and Alex,
Thank you for your pointers to XML tutorials, I'll certainly by doing some  
One thing I forgot in the excitement of getting the digital compass to  work. 
Bones mentioned that using .CAB files has the advantage of keeping your  
gauges file looking tidier. I was going to say that I guess a corollary of this 
is faster load times. My FS2004 gauge directory has 3,824 files, so I am  
guessing the system will take less time to load one CAB file than  finding say 
GAU files from the 3,824 total. That way one CAB file for  each aircraft makes 
sense, and although there may be gauge duplication the XML  files are not huge.
