Gail asks whether anyone follows the rules for "that" and "which." I
do, although it appears that less and less people do nowadays. I
guess I'm just old fashioned, then. But I like to be sure that the
meaning I intend is the meaning I convey, and the misuse of "that" and
"which" could lead to misinterpretation. Beth
