    Very good info, hopefully others can contribute to this thread and it can be stickied, so that those concerned about weight have this tool at their hands.

    Since "The Chart" name is already taken, we need to give this info a name.

    How about the word "weight" in Latin, if anyone knows what that is?:supergrin:
