OK, I know, this is not exactly what you were asking for. And I have often
been missing the que function myself. But till such a thing comes around,
maybe this software will help you somehow. And best of all: It is all free
of charge. Sorry, I don't have the url here, right now, but try a search; or
mail me off list, and I can send it as an attachment. - To all you blind
users: This software functions great with screenreaders...
