I was wondering whether I was the only one who noticed
an uncomfortable similarity between some recent postings
from "Richard Lewis" and some older postings from Tony
Markos. I guess this posting, signed by "Richard Lewis" but
sent by Tony Markos explains the resemblance.

So what's up with the alias, Tony? Nom de plume? Alter
ego? Multiple personality? Or some other such?

Tools aside - the major skill of a techical writer is
skill in structured writing.
