Hints and Tips
To make your archive look the best it can be, we recommend that you
cut-and-paste it into your word processing software and do a spell check
on it. This is also a good way to replace certain abbreviations with
fully spelled words. For instance, you could do a global replace
on the abbreviation TBSP with the word tablespoon.
It is also highly recommended that you NOT use single-character fractions
(such as 1/2 or 1/4), but rather, use the 3 connected characters.
The same is true for characters which are not part of the standard American
character set (as in the word saute...use a plain e rather than
an e with the accent mark or symbols such as the circle-R or circle-T
or the degree symbol). Many users have computers which cannot translate
these to a readable format and end up with garbage on their screens.
I realize it's tempting to make your files pretty, but you'll pay the price
later on when you receive lots of mail from people asking you to translate
the stuff on their screens, and some of them won't be very nice...trust
me, I know.
