Oh, no worries! It's better to disagree over and
discuss this than two spaces after a period or Wierd
versus FrameBreaker.

I would add, with respect to Geoff's comments, that I
believe I am not being unfair by using Mr. Nielsen's
assessment as a PDF as basis for wondering about the
guy's general credibility. Just as you all are welcome
to judge me by my online contributions, in public, in
e-mail inlcuding typos, and in articles like my Screen
Captures 102 stuff or my presentation on single
sourcing that I gave to WinWriters, London (both PDFs
by the way), I don't see a problem with holding up a
light to Mr. Nielsens rather aggressive attack on PDF
technology and see some of that light reflected.

Oh, those PDFs--you are all welcome to critique them
here on techwr-l as part of this ongoing discussion:

Screen Captures 102 (628kb intended to be downloaded),

Case Study (633kb intended to be presented from a
local hard drive) here:

I look forward to the feedback and, if varMaxPosts<15,
the debate. <vbg>
