Thanks Jens, that seems to work.

This would seem to be the preferable way if it can always be done in the
latest version. However, I do not understand how to do it. Is it done
through the Option Inspector? I can't find FrontEndVersion in Option
Inspector and it doesn't allow me to add it to the notebook options. If I
have an existing notebook, how would I add that option?

I tried (in Version 4.1)

  FrontEndVersion -> "4.0 for Microsoft Windows"]

but this did change the value of the option. Nor did "0.1 for X" work.
