You have two words with fi in them, and neither is readable. Instead of fi, my system shows a little box or ^B, in one place or another. I have no idea what character you typed, or why, or what it looks like on your screen. But you need to restrict yourself to basic ASCII characters in newsgroup postings; anything else gives unpredictable results, that vary with the user's system. No Greek, degree signs, etc.
William... You often have good suggestions about format, but why not _also_ provide a little help when the meaning is clear.
