Hi, Conrad! Thanks for your speedy reply and for the information!

It's interesting that just after I finished talking with the telephone
information operator for the 408 area code area (who had told me that PHI
was not listed in the San Jose area), the following flashed into my mind:
Try Los Altos! <grin> But I didn't act on it. I should use my intuition
more, I guess, huh?

I do appreciate your giving me their CIS address as well, however, since I
subscribe to CompuServe. Writing them there will save me the cost of a long
distance telephone call. Hmm, they might even be on the web.

Thanks, too, for mentioning the "Classics List" web site. Could you tell me
their web address? Someone there should be familiar with the current tools
used for studying the writings of the Latin Fathers and thus be able to
recommend a lexicon for Jerome's Latin or the Vulgate. Come to think of it,
someone who subscribes to the Elenchus message list should know. (I recently
subscribed to that list. It doesn't seem to be very active, though.)

By the way, what does "wustl" in your domain name stand for? Washington
University at St. Louis? (Just a guess.) Are you an instructor there? I
teach English at City College of San Francisco.

All the best --
