I've been meaning to ask for a while why it is becoming so common for 
people to invent a variety of random quoting mechanisms rather than just 
using the > signs that have been the standard on the Internet for so 
long. My pattern matcher does not like being reconfigured for every one 
of the hundreds of messages I read every day. It seems to be an Outlook 
thing but isn't there a way to configure Outlook to conform to the 
standards that prevailed on the Internet before it even existed???

Why not call it KRL? That's the natural acronym for a "Knowledge 
Representation Language". I have to agree with Joshua that I found this 
quite confusing for a while until I understood that you were using the 
acronym in a non-standard way.
