Thanks Steve,

I actually like the col feature better. I was able to make it work for  
me. Now to install the new SWIS and maybe even make it so that it will  
work seamlessly(ish) with SignText and all so that people can also  
comment in SW. All I have to do is figure out how to pass the bsw code  
into the text field kinda like what the Media Plug-in does, but with  
WordPress software. That will be an exciting day to come, and it is  
getting closer to that. :-)
