Please don't guess about stuff like this. If you're not _sure_ something 
will work spend 5 minutes of your time testing it first so that everyone 
who reads your message doesn't have to spend their time finding out 
you're wrong, then posting about it.

Sorry to be so direct, but there are thousands of people subscribed to 
this list, and posts with incorrect information waste a 
disproportionately large amount of people's valuable time.
