I blame Kernighan, Richie, et al. for numbering their command-line utilities with Roman numerals! ;-) Unfortunately I don't see any way of fixing this short of making autoformat as intelligent as the average Unix programmer. Of course, you could always use the "ignore" flag that was introduced in version 1.07 to ignore such lines. Damian
