to take it. A case in point is the bland look I get when asking
people, if they also put a big wad of photocopies of all the
previously exchanged letters with every new one, when writing on
paper. (I add, that for me this would actually be helpful, it takes
me ages to find older paper letters, but with mail it is just one
single keystroke.) And the next question, why they make their mails
one size smaller than I find comfortable to read, i.e. deliberately
make it uncomfortable for me (size=2, the IE default), usually

In IE 6.0 blah, blah
In IE 7. o blah, blah"
I know people who work with computers for a living and/or teach PC skills.

But who am I to decide what is fundamental and important?
No one knows more than they want to know.
