(1) I understand the whole Caps thing being seen as rude, but I don't mean it like that. Most of the time, it's just to put enphasis (spelling) on that word. I forget that it is looked at as "yelling" online! I am sorry for doing that, I'm sure I'll still do it, I just have to be careful. But you were right, she didn't answer my question and then tryed to put it back on me!
(2) You did, however, answer my question. Thank you very much, I was only interested b/c I am interested in History in general and wanted to know where and why this "tradition" started!
