>>>>how to get out of
the funds in a tax friendly way.<<<<

I've heard of something called "last-in-first-out" strategy. Not quite sure of its details, but I think it refers to the fact that your latest investment purchases don't have VERY heavy tax implications, as those prices will not have appreciated as much as your earliest ones. As you get older and may possibly get into a lower tax bracket due to lower expenses(therefore less need for income), your tax burden on the oldest money in the funds will not be as big when you take THEM out. I hope this helps.
