I've never noticed this with Charles' postings here in the past and until
the above comments had not seen anything unusual in the posting to which you
refer.  These observations may be occasioned because I myself use a very
deliberate accustative and argumentative style in my own emails. In my case
it's not a Deaf (sic) way of writing -- I'm hearing --- but my preference
and my right. It demonstrates my character, whether the reader likes it or
not. If we were all to write in an homogenised fashion then this would be a
poorer place indeed.

Subsequent emails would support Charles' original assertion that there is a
limitation on the browsers that can be used succeedfuilly for adding and
editing signs to SignPuddle.

All that said I don't like Safari as a browser and despite this post being
typed on a Mac I'm actually using Firefox. However, when I use my iPad I am
forced to use Safari no matter how much I hate it and lament the absence of
essential tools (the most essential being AdBlockPlus) that I exploit in
Firefox. So should I ever need to update SignPuddle while away from my desk
Safari is what I stuck with. Seems I wouldn't be able to make use of
SignPuddle then.

Regards, Trevor.
