Messages in Uppercase As well as being difficult to read typing in uppercase can mean : a] in the language of 'netiquette' (etiquette on the internet) is means that you a making a very strong point by SHOUTING. Very useful in the right context, but not usually on message boards. or b] you are highlighting the name of something in order that it stands out in the message e.g. the name of the person in your tree that you are researching - BROMAGE. Or c] you are being too lazy to use the kepboard properly. Vera, Manchester
