Regarding Pam's statement: "Email doesn't allow for humor or other un-worded intentions to come through." On another list I subscribe to, we've been dealing with this in any of the following ways: adding <g,d&r> to mean "Grin, duck, and run" using emoticons such as ;) adding <Fe, Fe, Fe> to indicate "Irony, irony, irony!" (Fe being the chemical shorthand for iron. Attributed to Geoff Hart at FERIC, on the Copyediting list.) All of these work well. --Carolyn Haley dcma [at] ct1.nai.net
