I hear ya' !

It's reasonably automated now, but the first days of this project weren't fun as far as cross-platform is concerned

One question, will I cause problems if I put the ParentZone statement in the Parent Zone as well as the subZones?

You MAY be able to get away with it, but I would strongly recommend don't write it unless there is truly a Parent Zone.

You can usually get around the nastiness of these things by keeping a dictionary, or 2 parallel arrays, etc. to store the parent Zone Name for each Zone you plan to write, Then you just store an empty string for the true Parent Zone, and the Parent Zone Name in all the others.

Then when you go to write 'em out, you only write the ParentZone line if the name in the array for this position is not empty.

If that doesn't make sense, ask away
