Quote: <IMO, Why use an archaic term like "whilst"
when "while" will do? Why use "utilised" instead of
"used"? It isn't a creative writing exercise.>

Actually utilize is not a synonym of use. Utilize
means to make use of something usually for a purpose
it was not originally intended. For example, I
utilized the spoon to dig a hole.
Just my two cents.

Yahoo! DSL ? Something to write home about.
Just $16.99/mo. or less.
