     Yes, that's the problem with the whole stradd system.  I fixed it by 
ripping out the system of keeping two separate str and stradd stats and 
combining them into one.  If the str is 18 or less, I display the 
strength as that number.  If the str is 19 to 23, I display it as 18/xx, 
where I have xx as a multiple of 20 up to 100.  If the str is 24 or more, 
then I display the str as (str - 5).  Make's life in that area a whole 
bunch easier. :)  But then, that's me.  And I'm just wierd.
