>I do like talking in unambiguous MARC field and subfield codes! The

seems well taken...I was working on a project this spring with a number of languages that I'm not familiar with...remember looking at MARC records in Finland and the Netherlands to help understand the MARC records I had created from another metadata format...the focus was 245 titles both parallel and multiple...since I know 245 subfields, my questions were easily answered..
