Capn Shadow) Thanks, pal! I appreciate the assist! "Vehemence of temper" seemed, at first, to be more of an adjective until I realized it fell into the same category as "cup of tea", "leg of lamb" or "peace of mind"... the fact that another noun follows them doesn't negate the fact that "cup", "leg", and "peace" are still nouns! ...and just WHERE did you get that dictionary, young man! I thought I was holding the only copy! :) Kal
