Hi Tim - Thanks. If you don't mind, let's see
what the new grey in panel c, and also the 5-95%
range on a. Also, another alternative to the grey
and red could be some other color that is just
less bright - perhaps blue?

Agree there is no reason to switch the reviewed
panel c uncertainty approach. It argues a bit
that we leave panel a as is too. I'm unsure what
is best, so maybe see what Keith thinks too - and
discuss more with Phil - he is right that most
are trying to go with 5-95 where possible.

Thanks again.
