Thanks, Les and AB, and everyone else! I too had hereto and hadn't noticed it when the solution was given. As I said earlier, I thought the hidden clues were especially nice this time- peterm's 16a, ixion's 2d, and magpie's 27d. Also liked syzzie's 30d, Les's 31d, ixion's 40d, AB's 24d, and peterm's 25 and 34d. Lots of great clues, very enjoyable.
