Thanks a lot.  That appears to have taken care of it.  Seems that my
'localhost' is set at 128 meg and production server was 16meg <sigh>.
Probably not too many pages that will break the 128 <G>

Thanks again

Have a look at your php.ini-file (living in directory with the name php
on a
windows installation and in a directory named etc on a linux machine,
absolute position of the directory is afaik dependent on your
web-server/php-installation) and search for the parameter memory_limit.
Setting it to a higher value solved a similar problem for me.

Btw.: Does anybody know if there is a optimal size for that parameter
in relation to the system-memory?)?

Good luck!
