(The Houston Chronicle ran a not-too-friendly series on the Internet a couple years back, so abuse of that paper was common in a number of newsgroups for a while.) The Daily Titan, the student paper at California State University, Fullerton, is widely called the Daily Titanic; a parody version (which ran only one or two issues) called itself the Titanic, too. The Guardian (Manchester, England) is apparently known for making goofs in its typesetting; at any rate, it is often called the Grauniad. -------- David Harnick-Shapiro Internet: david[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Information and Computer Science UUCP: ...!{ucbvax,zardoz}!ucivax!david University of California, Irvine
