Well, I got the whole of the message Ian had problems with, but there
appeared to be long and short lines, so I think my reader was fighting,
whereas Terry's did the right thing.

I subscribe to the digest - I wonder if the digesting software tidies
this sort of long line (or makes the matter worse) ?

To start a second new thread:
I know Terry as a lad's name - short for Terrance;
from where does the ReelLass' name come ?
