Hi David,
	I guess my question is how important is fancy5 and fancy6?  Those  
will be the hard ones for me to do.  Keep in mind that "display of ...  
major ellipses" will look like fancy3 except that you will be able to  
see the arcs of the major ellipses without using a transparent  
ellipsoid.  The other "fancy modes" are not difficult to do.
