Hello,

I'm reading this news group with Multi-Threaded NewsWatcher (<http://www.best.com/~smfr/>) wich is a very cool news reader for the MacOS. Unfortunately, it seems that it doesn't handle HTML well, so I see every ">" instead of '>'.

Well, I'm posting this to also test the system.

The more I look at Conversant, the more I like it, and can't wait for the source code (I need my own Conversant badly for a project I'm working on (BTW thank for making the code available (that's a lots of inner parenthese))).

Conversant is really in lines with the Jon Udell book at O'Reilly ( I just read the first part). Have you thought of demoing Conversant to Udell?

Cheers
