OK, anyone have handy the formulas that describe the surfaces used in protein
cartoons, or for that matter the ribbon structures?  I presume that 
they are primarily based on the locations of thebackbone atoms?  What is the 
standard for smoothing this functions so you don't have little sawteeth?
Any input more than welcome ....Thanks :-)
