That just deletes the text, but not the reference to the page. Patrick has
given a full answer to the problem I had. Whilst I have been around
computers, mainly programming in the distant past in "George" (_First
generation, valve computer that filled 2 biggish rooms), Fortran, PL1,
Pascal, Delphi -- I have now moved over to Linux and became an Open Source
Enthusiast. I also learned to program Python - and love it. Perhaps now I
will need to learn PHP, but I am not sure if it's worth while. I am 80 and
what is the life expectancy for males?

Don't let it bother you - a good effort! You will not get 90% mark with HD,
but you will get 76% for good effort - and for trying.
Thanks for that,
