As must we both, because I must ask the list to accept a further
correction. (E-mail sometimes flows so fast, one doesn't take the time
one should to proof it.) Michael's msg missed out on not one, but two,
words of our Irish "Quick brown fox" sentence, which reads, in full:

"D'fhuascail Íosa, Úrmhac na hÓighe Beannaithe, pór Éava agus Ádhaimh"

(for a full set of our lowercase accented-vowel non-ASCII requirements,
just reduce the entire statement to lc).
With best wishes
