Gee Mike, you're making me blush. I'll take credit for writing the paper, but not for the tools that are out there. They are simple, straight-forward and easy to implement.

Perhaps one of the most important notions in the paper is way at the end in the Conclusions where I simply state that these techniques are as equally applicable to ODS as they are to the Web-publishing macros. In fact, I am preparing a new paper now for some of the fall Regional conferences wherein I run scores of TABULATEs through ODS and create a separate stand-alone cross-tabular Table of Contents with full two-way drill-down navigation between it and the TABULATEs. I'm calling it, "I'll Have the TABULATEs a la ODS Please, With a Table of Contents On the Side". Stay tuned.

PS - for the record, there is a minor, but important typo (mine) in the paper. In the section entitled "ENHANCED %TAB2HTM OUTPUT", the sentence reading,

This would produce a converted value for NE of: <A HREF='enhanced NE_stxdiv_1999_06_01.htm'>NE</A>.

should read,

This would produce a converted value for NE of: <A HREF='enhanced NE_stxdiv_1999_06_01.htm'>NorthEast</A>.

Sorry.

Ray
