How about something like this:

> <ENTER> after each command.

For example, to answer message 3, enter:

< A 3

To delete messages 5 and 7, enter:


It helps to seperate the commands from your explanations and if you have the
option to put user entered info in another font, like courier.

It's a frustrating problem. Even with this solution, I'd bet money that people
will enter the prompt along with the rest of the command.

Hope that helps,
