That looks like just the thing - thank you.

It occurred to me that there are probably a lot gems like this tucked 
away in the PDF vignettes.  I suspect that if they could be provided on 
the BioConductor webpage as normal HTML files, then Google and other 
search engines would be able to search them far more effectively - in 
particular for their images.

As one of R's strengths is graphics, it would make sense to make samples 
of its output as easy to find as possible - and for me that means Google 
Image search.

Anyway - Thanks again Sean,
