Subject: [GENBOX] Re: UK Sources Template- help needed

Thanks to everyone who is working on my UK sentence template. Cheri, I'm
using Caroline Gurney's UK templates in TMG ( and very good they are too),
but the question was more about the practicalities of deciding which label I
should attach to which field when I make the new template and then
constructing the citation templates. I think there are Gremlins in the
rootsweb Lists at the moment and some messages aren't getting though, so you
probably didn't see my first message in which I gave Caroline's sentence
I think I am missing something very basic here ( again!)
