Quite, but, as you so rightly say, every vendor is providing different 
'standards', they are all offering 'broken' implementations, even 
between models. This doesn't change things for us mere mortals trying to 
do a job.

I've given you something that works in an older version, all you have to 
do is translate that into the current version and then at least we will 
have something to build on. At the moment, we have nothing working in 
2.0.6 for the CS 500.
