Richard,

   Please disregard the mail that I just sent!  I seem to be getting 
mails that u sent to the reflector almost a day or two after u posted 
them!!  Hence the confusion.

~ Sriram,
~ 
~ Anywhere we want to mean "immediately after" (in the context of 
maintaining
~ a strict sequence rather than in the context of setting timing limits) 
I
~ think the form "after X and before Y" should be used. I don't think 
"after"
~ needs to be defined since it follows standard English usage, AFAIK. 
And
~ you're right, we can't use "immediately".
