    Hi. I just want to mention that "How to ..." is not a question, it is just a heading and so you don't need a question-mark. : ) I know a lot of people are doing this now, but it is really incorrect (and drives me mad!). "How do I ...?" is a question and you can use the question-mark with that.

    Thanks for your tips and helpful information.
