Thanks Keith. That's prime fodder for the database we have talked about;
Wiki type being just fine for this, Google supplying the more complex 
search capability, through BTW their custom search engines,
i.e. a cse for all the intralinks in the fuels page, intralinks being 
topic pages containing that info and users pages with same.
Install a Google web search dialog box in the fuels page which 
accountholder/editors use to search for plant material with fuel 
potential; cut and paste data from hits returned and browsed
back into the fuels page, and so on. Endless possibilities, thanks
in great part to Google.
