Construction measuring standards are LxWxH... A Window is only measured WxH. A Christmas light should be measured Diameter X Length. You can think of Diameter as Width, how thick the light bulb is. Does that help? __________________ Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.

But agreed that it would be W x H. __________________ __________________ **************************************** Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive.
