Separation of pas ... du tout

I am surprised by the english translations provided above.  For example:

I would translate the first as 
"She's not at all stupid" 

Elle n'est pas du tout stupide!
She's not stupid at all!

Elle n'est pas stupide du tout!
She's not stupid at all!

That sounds great, Bill. It isn't always possible to find such parallels between English and French but it's nice to use them if they do.
