Hi Greg. A 'comma' is a character as well as a 'space'. They both take up _space_. Like Greg, I use commas without spaces, to separate phrases. Such as: t j daniels,tjdaniels,poetry tjdaniels,tjdaniels poetry, Check out my 'key words' source. Then go to & type in t j daniels OR tjdaniels OR tjdaniels poetry. Hope this info helps. TJ
