Thanks Chris! Exactly what this noob needed.

Your reply brings to mind another question though. I kinda asked it
previously, in a different context.

IYO, which Self documentation should an OOP noob read first? I'm
currently reading the "Prototype-Based Application Construction Using
SELF 4.0" but it seems, IMO, to assume previous knowledge of at least
Smalltalk. Should I be wading through the "Self Handbook" first? Some
other docs? TIA ...

Q: Because it reverses the logical flow of conversation.
A: Why is top posting frowned upon?
