Which Chris? There are two on this thread, as you yourself point out a
little further on.

Nice commentary. No clue what it means, though. I agree that not
everyone in this thread is American.... and your point was?

Thats why I rather like the quoting feature in my new mailer, which
puts explicit attribution in the quotes.

Fr some definition of correct, which i am sure you are about to point
me to.

Chris Wilson was never head of the Mac IE team as far as I am aware,
nor of the browser on WebTV. I thought it was worth a shot asking him
about PocketPC, since that is a Windows-related codebase.

Chris Wilsons mailer does not add prefixes to quotes, neither does Jan
Roland Eriksson's, so you have to count ">" characters for the other stuff.

Jan, I don't see anything in Chris Wilsons mail that you would get
upset about.
