Re: SAX LEGSPC FITS keywords

	Just to avoid any misunderstanding, the FITS keywords I've
circulated are planned be used, for the moment, for the in-house
processing of SAX LEGSPC data by the ESA/ESTEC team (who built the
instrument). What the other SAX instrument groups will do in terms of
data processing and data formats, and in what format will GOs receive
their SAX data are at the moment still subject to discussion.

	Thanks for the comments, I will give them a thought and answer
to your questions.
