	If anybody tried this code and didn't get anything that I claimed it 
would do, I apologise.  The correct code is

ParametricPlot3D[{Sin[u], Cos[u] Sin[t], Cos[t], EdgeForm[Hue[0]]},
                {u, -Pi,0}, {t, 0, Pi}]

.                                         R              
L                                         E
