Sir, thanks for your response. I read the faq but it doesn't 
answer my main question: how does one play a .nbp file in 
Mathematica? -- which is all I have.

I'm asking only because the demonstrations thing allowed me 
to download a source code but it is given only in .nbp, not 
..nb.  I went back and looked and saw no option to get a .nb.

Apparently I have the option to get player, install it, etc 
just to see this code. Is this my only option (if you know)?

Thanks again for your attention to this, Rob
