Mel,

Thank you. I've known the differences between solid and stranded wires for a
long time, and thought the flexility of stranded cables would make them
preferred. But, checking is always worth the effort, only because I had no
idea that cat5e cables were available with solid wire cores.

Regards,

Rich
