HI Mick,

Unfortunately at the time we didnt do much in terms of guidance on how to
attribute mulitple nested materials.  The chooser only really determines a
'safe' 'overall licence' for the material, based upon the inclusions. This
is one element we would like to fix in the next version.  The CC Add-in for
MS Office that we are working at the moment has provision for this aspect.

Kind regards
