Well, actually he did answered to the same message, but since you didn't put
the magical sentence "XXX wrote:" before quoting me, exact reference was
And obviously, it was a second level quote, so it wasn't necessarily you
that wrote it. But I concede it is not necessarily obvious...
Note I don't mind the lack of reference, it is frequent in this mailing list
and I sometime forget it myself, as I have to type it manually (#$¤!
webmails! And I code them for a living, sigh...) I hurry to add it before hitting
send, as I think of it :-)
BTW, I agree with Benjohn and your remarks. Compressed XML is efficient.
Note that then, you have to take an extra step to edit it in a text editor,
which can be a bit cumbersome for frequent edits.
Perhaps we should add automatic/transparent decompression/compression (using
zlib) to SciTE... An idea to study.
