Just a personal request please, but some correspondents are falling into the habit of replying IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.

 

Can I point out that such replies are extremely hard on the eye and I would suggest are therefore bad mannered.

 

We may not all agree, but I for one would appreciate it if the use of all upper-case text could be discontinued. I rarely read such replies as its too much like hard work!

As a major culprit I apologise for the bad manners.The problem is the need to distinguish annotations from the text being replied to. I have now discovered how to use colour and /or italics to do this. Any preferences ?

Preferably not yellow, orange or grey.... there is a lack of contrast against the white!

 

Perhaps we could petition Mr. Mander to see if the creators of the board are able to load a communion wine-colouerd font....

That might offend the non-conformists!

 

I think italics can also be a bit hard on the eye except for the odd word. Some people have used blue which seems quite readable to me.

I noticed that as well, and it comes over as a bit LOUD!!! I do use odd capitals for emphasis, but in computer jargon isn't it considered a bit forceful? :P

Rehaps we could outlaw red, for the same reason.

 

How about simply choosing a different typeface?

 

Hmmm - Geneva and Optima look suspiciously like Arial sans-serif to me.

 

I do so love your red lipstick :P

Excuse me? :P

 

Can anyone explain the different coloured handbags at the side of the messages. I can't find the list of what they mean. I think the pink ones are very fetching, but I don't like the blue ones quite so much.

Go to General Discussion and scroll down. There is a legend in the lower left-hand corner.
