Subject: ADMIN: Please take ageism offline


Although the ageism discussion was initiated to
discuss the issue in the context of technical
communication, it seems to be growing increasingly
irrelevant to technical writing issues.

Please take it off-line.

Subject: Re: File name or filename?

>I am somewhat of a purist. I prefer "file name" in text. When I use it as
a variable name in an example, I'll do something like this:

> copy <filename>.TXT c:/junk

>Almost invariably, I'll use italics for <filename> as a formatting
convention for variables.

...erm, am I being a bit dim here?

you preference?
