Sorry guys.
In my preoccupation with separating USER from PROGRAMMER I stepped into a rather smelly issue of my own making.
However your response is making me aware of a number of issues which may have lain dormant, simply because nobody "in the know" would have had (myself included) the courage to ask such a seemingl silly question.. 
How many Users would know what NT even means: Afterall Users don't program or do they?
Cheers and rosuccess
