2000-09-28  Andy Heninger  DOMPrint sample: add deletes before exit so boundschecker runs cleanly.  
2000-09-22  James Berry  Change file access permissions to fsRdPerm. Since we never write, there's no reason to request write access. Thanks to John Mostrom @ Adobe. Also nuke a few spaces and the entire defunct support for reading directly from MacOS resources.
