    This doesn't really deserve an answer, does it? Also, if @Leo's answer was of any help, you should accept his response which is probably the best way to thank him for the interest and time spent on your question.

  • @chl: I do agree with your second sentence. But I find it quite OK to post stuff like this as an answer to one's own question. Feb 12, 2011 at 15:43
  • @Hendrik Ok, I just find that it would have been more courteous to also cite the responder that gave the right clue.

    The best option in my opinion would be to edit your example either into Leo's answer or your question. Feb 12, 2012 at 16:44
