Most mailreaders these days thread not on the subject, but on the References: or In-Reply-To: headers or stuff like that. But out of consideration to ones that thread on Subject:, one can solve this the way Usenet folks have for ages -- use the "was:" convention. e.g. given a thread with subject Subject: fgrun improvements when someone in the thread starts to discuss lighting, they can change the subject line to Subject enhanced lighting fps (was: fgrun improvements) If *that* isn't enough, then we're talking about trying to accomodate bugged/broken mail readers. -c -- Chris Metzler [EMAIL PROTECTED] (remove "snip-me." to email) "As a child I understood how to give; I have forgotten this grace since I have become civilized." - Chief Luther Standing Bear
