Dear Leon:

	  How good is your Manderin?  I am pleased and humbled that Mr. Dengmin 
has made the effort to put his question in English.  I don't know his 
background, but my Eastern-language enabled email provided a rendition 
of "Richard Dengmin" in the form or two Chinese characters, suggesting 
that it might have been difficult for him to learn enough English just 
to be able to prepare the question he posted to this list.

	  Beyond this, it has not always obvious how to use a spell checker for 
email software.  Even if you have a "Spell" button on your email 
software, it might only work in your primary tongue without some 
less-than-obvious effort to configure it to also check text in other 
languages.  I know that my previous attempts to write something in a 
language other than my Mother tongue have tended to display much higher 
rates of spelling and grammar errors -- some even to the point of 
failing to communicate.  Therefore, I try to avoid criticizing someone 
else's use of language, except to ask for clarification where the 
meaning is not clear (or when it seems that some friendly, copy editing 
suggestions might be favorably received).

	  Best Wishes,
	  Spencer Graves
