	I am not able to answer your question.  So, I will forward your
email to another scientist in the field who is much more familiar with the
entire tagging program.  In case something happens to your message, send it
again .  His address is and his name is
Michael.  Sorry I cannot answer your question.  But, I know that he will
be able to help.

Good Luck, Courtney
