Geoff Hart slipped in a great little goodie after a humorous aside - he used
an <Fe> tag.

I knew it wasn't a REAL tag ... and it took a minute to click:

<fe> - Start Irony
</fe> - End Irony

I love it!!!

Nice job, Geoff. (Even if you only implied the opening tag, you DID close
it off nicely)

Who else has pseudo-tags they use?

I like and use:

<snip> to show clipped off segments of text
<grin> to show amusement or frivolity

I suppose these are a spin-off of emoticons, and have the potential to be
morphed into from IM acronyms ... I can foresee a <IMHO> tag ...

Just a spark that caught fire in my tinderbox of a mind ...

Sonia Bayne reports: <<...imagine my surprise when I got a warning message

Techwhirl archive!>>

The horror! <g> But that's hardly surprising, after all; even in this
enlightened age, it's not surprising your company's guardians of public
decency were shocked by our discussion of topics such as single-sourcing
(the techwhirler's monogamy equivalent), "users" (of unspecified
substances), "hardware" (ooh!), handheld devices, instruction manuals, and
the like. </Fe>
