Thank you!  I was going crazy, as I've used both the context error message and postfilter answer hints in many other problems without issue.  But guess I normally stay in Numeric context, so I wasn't fully realizing how those commands need to be in the right context to work.  

I had actually tried the Context error message for the numerator first, but I put it right below the Context("Numeric") line instead of after the Context("LimitedPolynomial-Strict") line, and so when it didn't work, that's when I switched to the postfilter error message, thinking that it was a type problem like we had discussed before.  But I understand my mistake now.

Thank you!
