Hi Karl,

I guess you use Emacs too :-) So keep it that way. You are probably not a
novice and then there is no problems for you format created with your
editor. However, if we want to increase the DSSSL audience, it may help if
we show them script format convention that could help them make the
transition from block based languages like c,c++, java, etc... to dsssl.

So, Karl, I don't know where do you see that I am making more harm when I
try to help new people to learn and understand this language. I hope that
you'll have enough cleverness to understand this. And by the way, I do not
think that people are stupid, only that sometimes some of them are a bit too
narrow minded :-)

As Adam said: Use a decent editor (Emacs, e.g.)!  You're doing more harm
than good with your "style rules".

And please, never think people are to stupid to learn useful things.
