 You MUST read each Change description to determine if a Change will    
 impact your site. All changes have been made in this MXG Library.      
                                                                        
 Member CHANGES always identifies the actual version and release of     
 MXG Software that is contained in that library.                        
                                                                        
 The CHANGES selection on our homepage at http://www.MXG.com            
 is always the most current information on MXG Software status,         
 and is frequently updated.                                             
                                                                        
 Important changes are also posted to the MXG-L ListServer, which is    
 also described by a selection on the homepage.  Please subscribe.      
                                                                        
 The actual code implementation of some changes in MXG SOURCLIB may be  
 different than described in the change text (which might have printed  
 only the critical part of the correction that need be made by users).  
                                                                        
 Scan each source member named in any impacting change for any comments 
 at the beginning of the member for additional documentation, since the 
 documentation of new datasets, variables, validation status, and notes,
 are often found in comments in the source members.
