It's been a while since we did ours but, like Michael says it's pretty 
straightforward.  You fit the glazing seal to the glass, the bottom 
should be one-piece and U-shaped, and the top is a separate piece.  We 
didn't have any trouble with the seal we got from Moss; it's wider than 
you need but you trim the excess at a 45-deg angle from the frame pieces 
to the glass (be careful not to score the glass).  The top seal and the 
top of the 'U' should be cut at 45-deg angles to each other at the 
corners as well.

I wrote Fourintune (Kay?) to ask for their secret but, for some reason, 
their replies didn't come through and she gave up after a couple tries 
(maybe it's one of those ancient, mythical things that should never be 
revealed).  You could write them and try again, and if you do get a 
reply please let us all know (and I hope we don't all die under 
mysterious circumstances shortly thereafter).

Happy New Year All!
