Jonathan and others,
Just to say that I would really appreciate it if you'd quote the old
messages that you're replying to using the standard convention of
preceding each line with a ">" sign. Otherwise it's terribly
difficult to make out what you're saying.
I appreciate that it's a burden, but suppose it takes you twenty
second to do it. If your message is read by 500 people and it saves
them ten seconds each (not an unreasonable estimate), then you've
saved 4980 seconds in total.
