Yeah, I guess we're both perfectionists ;) But on some things (such as this) I decided to leave perfectionism aside and make it work for the sane case (which is, as Tzafrir said, as an \alph replacement - does \alph work for numbers in the thousands?). This macro was meant to be used for short lists and appendix numbers: not for generating Hebrew calendars and such. At least the TODO proves I was aware of the problem :) In any case, if you wrote a "perfect" macro for any number, it's obviously better, and should probably be used in the "official" version (who's responsible for it?) unless it's extrememly slow or something. -- Nadav Har'El | Thursday, Oct 4 2001, 17 Tishri 5762 [log in to unmask] |----------------------------------------- Phone: +972-53-245868, ICQ 13349191 |From the Linux getopt(3) manpage: "BUGS: |This manpage is confusing."
