I'd love to continue debugging this (plus I thought "merlin12345" said
you can ask for your own account so you can upload on your own - I still
think there are plenty of free webspace options out there which will
serve you well in many other instances).

No I didn't.  BTW: you might want to start naming the .exe with the

In other words, putty-20040227.exe or similar.

Don't know what to tell you.  Once the shaping is a position where you
are comfortable with it, we'll need to ping Simon again and hopefully
have him answer all our final questions (mostly about which Bidi code
to use and where to plug it in).
