Dear Hans,

tried to include numbers there (to have it permanent) before I asked on
this list, but that did not work. Now after your reply I tried a
definition of \DroppedString including numbers in the document preamble,
and then it works. Is it possible to perform the extended definition of
\DroppedString in supp-fun.tex directly? Just changing

\def\DroppedString{ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ}

to

\def\DroppedString{ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789}

in supp-fun.tex does not work for me.

Thanks again

Yours sincerely
