I use "coke" to mean any cola-based soft drink (coca cola, pepsi cola, RC), but I would never use it to refer to *any* soft drink (coke <> 7-up). I'm amazed that anyone would say coke, when they mean 7-up. What gripes me everytime, is to go into a fast food restaurant, order their equivalent of a "happy-meal", ask for a coke to go with it, and be asked in return, "Is Pepsi OK?" Of course Pepsi's OK, it's the same thing isn't it? -- Jim
