You haven't misused any word and I wasn't offended at any level I was 
trying to point out that there was no point on continuing down that path 
of conversation so please no apologies, it doesn't feel right.

No, I asked you how you would answer such a question I didn't include 
any "usage info" because they where irrelevant to the question. In any 
case it is of no importance to me If I do not like something I can 
always change it to accommodate my needs. There is no point for me 
continuing this conversation, I have tried to contribute my 2 cents and 
that is all I can do at this point. Sorry for leading this thread away 
from its original question.
