Subject:        re: Tragic Hero

It is probably my fault, rather than Hardy's, that the Tragic Hero
message had to be sent twice today and that my own posting was plagued
by random exclamation marks, hard returns in the middle of words, and
the occasional removal of sections of text so that some of my points
were a little mangled.  I not only wrote an abnormally long post, but
was also forced to send it via a web based E-Mail service rather than
from the normal E-Mail software on my home machine.

Fortunately, I think, the deletions were placed in such a way that it
was fairly obvious what I was trying to say, and nothing hugely
significant was lost.  Should anybody be desperate to read the complete
posting without these errors, please E-Mail me and I will forward a copy
to you when I get home (early next week).

Apologies for the mangled condition of my posting.

Thomas Larque.

[Editor's Note: My apologies to Thomas. The problem was that listserv
limits the number of characters to a line. This posting arrived with all
paragraphs one-line long. When the character limit was reached, an
exclamation mark was inserted and the remaining text followed again
until the character limit was reached and so on. I thought that I had
caught the majority of lines arriving as such; I guess I did not. But as
you may have noticed, traffic on the list has been more than unusually
high of late. The reason for the resending is also technical. For
reasons that I shall not go into here, I use the Netscape 3 browser to
send messages intended for the entire list to listserv. This browser has
a message text limit, which is seldom exceeded. Because of the length of
this digest, Mike's posting was truncated and Karen's not sent. If I
send a long file as an attachment, I do not have this problem. --Hardy]
