Excellent - just wanted to be sure we were fostering good CAD practice....

BTW, you may already know this, but you don't need to send custom hatch pattern definitions along with DWG files unless you're concerned about the recipient being able to create more hatching of the same type. When you add hatching to a drawing, AutoCAD incorporates all of the information it needs in the drawing (either as an anonymous block in R13 and earlier versions, or as an internal pattern definition in R14). Hatching doesn't create any "outside" references. Fonts, xrefs, and shapes are all you need to worry about.
