You are quite right about a lot of things. The context of my
remark was someone saying that the question "doesn't make a lot
of sense". The point of my slight irritation was that there is
no need to sort of pretend (is this the right word or too
strong?) that one does not understand a simple enough
question... One can and should raise questions and discussions
without such devices or pretences.
I notice you wise-tell about the essential nature of usenet. Me,
I don't think it /has/ an essential nature. It is a whole lot of
earthlings and a few infiltrators saying things... (I include
Queenslanders as well as Martians in the latter category)
Anyway, what has this to do with html/css?
