I'm sorry, the whole problem is fully attributable to my innocent
expectation that people will change the catcode of '@' character
before and after the definition, because the necessity of catcode
change in such situations has been discussed in this list
previously. And in all the fairness, I trusted Manoj to do that since
he knows the innards of LaTeX. Had someone else posted the query, I
would have obviously added the \makeatletter... \makeatother.

Please cool down David, after all this is a list of novices rather
than TeXies as you find in the tug.org lists. However, I must thank
you for your patience to answer all the questions, dont take anything
personally if at all any query seems too naive.

Apologies for triggering something hot in a relatively cool list.
