Thank you very much.

I have a question though:

,----[ from org.texi ]

specification.}, and

So when I say DEADLINE<="<today>" and if the deadline has a
timestamp ( < current time ), then it will not be listed.  Is my
understanding correct?  I wonder if "<today>" should not be
better pegged at 23:59 of today's date?
