Re: [RC] re: 100s discussion - Barbara McCrary

Thank you, Joe. Does that mean I can use uppercase for emphasis as long as I don't overdo it? Just a word or two?

As standard ASCII e-mail does not have boldface and italics as options, we have to use other means. Putting a word inside *asterisks* is one substitution for italics. Making a word or phrase ALL-CAPS is one substitution for boldface.

I believe it is only "shouting" and poor ettiquette if it is done to
excess, such as whole paragraphs in uppercase.
