Thanks very much for the explanation - I'm sorry for the delay in my
thanks, but I was out of town.

I did consult -help numlist- and [U]14.1.8 before writing, I promise,
but plain  failed to see that the interval was dictated by the number
listed before the range for 'to' and ':'. Boneheaded, indeed - I think I
misread all the pertinent examples because I expected all but the
explicit interval definition (e.g. 1[10]100) to be simple range
delimiters.

Thank you again.

No.  For the ":" and "to" syntax, the preceding number specify the
interval used in constructing the number list.

For example:

10 15 to 25 == 10, 15, 20, 25

which is different than 

10 15/25 == 10 15, 16, 17,..

-help numlist- has many more examples.
