I know that. I thought that if the client is at a lower level, as in
this case, I would need to write SQL that satisfies the client. In other
words, features that emerged after 4.1 would have to be omitted since
the client wouldn't know how to handle them.

But I'm not clear what the MySQL Client even is let alone what it does
so I'm prepared to accept the good news that I can write SQL at the 5.1
level and not have it be a problem for the client.

I can try sending a note to that effect to the hosting company but I
have my doubts about whether they will care.

Still, this may explain why the script generated by the Export of my
table failed to work when I tried to use it to reimport my table. The
second (non-comment) line it had generated was:
SET time_zone = '+00:00";

As you can see, the string begins with an apostrophe but ends with
quotation marks, causing a mismatch.

Or maybe that's just a completely different error that has nothing to do
with the client/server levels.
