Thanks very much: I typed "?summary.fit" when I meant to type
"?summary.lm", which explains why I didn't find the "cor" argument.
Thanks also for the reference to "?vcov". I didn't see that in the "see
also" section for either "lm" or "summary" or "summary.lm". Might it be
worth added?
Thanks again,
