Thank you! Very well explained. Related to this, way back in earth science class, I vaguely recall a phenomenon of something changing from solid to gas so rapidly it did not become liquid in between--I've forgotten the term that describes this...??

Ah, yes--thank you! Something like that nagging at the back of your brain can drive you nuts! ;-)
