    Mike beats me by answering this question, I was typing the same when his 
    message came in.
    Pierre Neirinck knows much more about the Pageos fragments.
    Several years ago he wrote several appendixes on th Pageos fragments when 
    reporting his observations.
    They should be in the Seesat-L archive.
