If you are intending to modify this file with the new payware tool that has had recent buzz you should know that the tool will strip some elements out of this file and will not save them.

I have found great success with the freeware tool ADE, currently in beta and available at the address below.

Use these files at your own risk. This little file took awhile to do so please respect the work and contact me if you would like to use it in whole or part in another project. It’s released as freeware and I would like it to stay that way.
