This is how I do it, i.e., I use 'snip' lines between the parts I want to
respond to, and delete the rest.

However, I think one of the reasons people are leaving in the past posts to
the threads here is because its the only way to follow it, since there are
apparently no archives to refer to. I've had to come back and ask questions
that were answered just two days before in part of an RE that was deleted
when a thread's subject line was changed.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE: ARCHIVE THIS LIST. If you were using it to learn,
like many of us, you'd see the value of that immediately.

Always. I didn't mean to yell, I was just emphasizing.

Warmest regards,
