Thanks! I figured out the workaround, but didn't have a way of doing 
bulk changes. Great to have a fallback if webserve.ca takes too long to 
come to its senses. There are probably thousands of wiki pages by now 
that have the http:// string included.

Much appreciated.

...in fact I hadn't looked at your tool before, and it certainly looks 
like it would be useful as a general system management tool.

Thanks again.
