Would it were so simple! Unfortunately my zipped backup of 4.70a11 has 
somehow got corrupted, but I did look to see whether all the mode 
files were there, and they were. I'll have another go at running 
4.70a11 and customising it.

Well, knock me down with a feather! Did that, downloaded all the mode 
files, put them in StrongED, and I can now create whatever I want.

Sorry to have wasted people' time :-(
