Hi all,

Thanks to Manish, Matthew, and Nick for the pointers.

Matthew's (1) and Nick's (4), while good to know about, didn't help 
here: the line with point has the face hi-line which masks the 
underlying face from those commands. (2) and (3) both yield the 
desires information, though, so thanks bunches.

Best,

Brian vdB
