Lloyd,Yes, you can save yourself from the trouble ofworrying about collinearity caused byinteracting terms. Interaction terms and itscomponents are usually correlated and are socorrectly. There is no magical trick to reducethe collinearity and although centring variablescould be helpful sometimes to easeinterpretation, it does not alter anything statistically or substantively.Best wishes, Johan Hellstrom
