    Hi Hal,
    Thanks for your reply. I wasn't aware of all these Palm applications! And I
    guess I need to find a better name than Pilot Navigator now... Dang!
    I'm in the US, have an emulator, and develop in C with PRC-tools. I won't
    comment on doing forms by hand in Emacs. Besides this, it's fun to write. I
    am getting familiar with the UI guidelines, and am keeping launch codes and
    multisegment for later. I don't have Bowditch yet, but I do have the French
    admiralty manuals and I don't see why the formulas would not yield the same
    results?
    YA
