Thank you Hal.  I discovered this table just before I read your email.  I
also see in section 709. I can substitute lighter beams by increasing
the thickness of the fireprotection.  I never had to deal with this problem
in this depth so I was not familiar with this section.

Thanks for your help!

PS:  You all can ignore my Seismic email message now!  :o)
