I find it easier to use the "new" format, and edit to the shipping.asc
file with a text editor, such as vi. I don't use the admin UI for
shipping. The shipping rules don't tend to change that often anyway
(only the prices). You can define and use variables for the prices,
such as __NORMAL_SHIP_COST__, or whatever.
I haven't looked at your modified shipping rules properly. It's
usually best to experiment with them on a test setup, as you don't
know whether they'll work the way you want until you try them out.
The rules I posted were really to just give you a starting point.
Your cascade from "free_or_normal" to "normal" seems redundant but,
as I said, I haven't looked at it properly.
