I've been using QS for so long, that I haven't looked at the manual much in
a long time. Since I use QS for notes to myself, it is possible that some
discrepancies have crept in that were not in the manual. When you
mentioned that the half-Wheat or half-Yo weren't in the manual, I thought
you must have overlooked them since their use seemed so obvious (at least
to me!). Apparently at some point, I started using them and had never
thought to check the manual regarding their "official" sanction by Read.
A zigzag in halfWheat and halfWin sounds like a handwriting tip worthpassing on, but probably worth passing up in a computer typeface, like the
"final halfTot." I don't think it would be productive for there to be
alternate alternate letters. Just too complicated.
([zig-zag] doesn't seem to be in QM; did you come up with it, or did youget it from your correspondence with Read?)
For the QM reference to the zig-zag, see page 14: "In some halved
connections a tiny zig-zag or 'step' breaks confusing continuity." I just
applied the zig-zag to half-Win and half-Wheat, which Read did not.
Confusion arises when the vowel continues the same line as the half-Win or
half-Wheat. When there is an angle where the letters connect, it does not
cause confusion so no zig-zag is needed. For example "white" could be
written with half-Wheat followed by Ice with no possibility of confusion.
(I just tried it with Jerome, and it works fine.)
I would recommend IE.I tried IE and couldn't figure it out either. Maybe I'm doing this wrong.
When I go to options it has a spot to choose a proportional font and a spot
to choose a non-proportional font. If I choose Jerome for the
proportional, then everything in IE that is proportional appears in Jerome.
I can't have an e-mail message partly in Roman and partly in Jerome as I
receive from you. What gives? How do you split an e-mail into two

to your taste. The "options" tab is global, affecting basically
everything your browser sees. You don't want that to be in Jerome!
When you go to tools, Choose Mail and News. Then Read Mail. From
Outlook Express (which pops up) choose File, New, Mail Message.
From the new message window, go to Format>Rich Text (HTML)
This will allow the tools to specify a font and font size in a mail
(Looks like you already figured it out, though, unless you did the
Frost poem on a word processor.)
