I will be joined at the LaJolla meeting--and at the Frame tutorial--by
Jennifer Longman, a fellow Project Editor, so please include her on any
future correspondence.  Your outline for a tutorial sounds very good.
We'll try to flesh it out some between now and mid June, and run what we
have by you when you're here for the next Standards Board meeting.

Let us know if you'd like anything else covered, and we'll include it in
the presentation.
