aha, thanks jeff, the documentation for the VE is quite scant, but I've
got to a pointwith your help where I can write down a simple tutorial to
get some people started, showing someone a concrete example of whta I've

You can find the tutorial on my blog here
I hope people will look at it and any errors, they can leave a comment,
thanks everyone, enjoy
