I tried to post a comment on "An Initial Gui...", and in the
process thought of couple minor fixes that might make D3E
1. When I clicked Quote to quote the message I was replying to, the message appeared as it was without any ">" signs preceding each line. This makes it impossible to quote between the lines. Also, another problem with quoting is that the message is quoted with <html> tags around it, and then does not seem to format properly once it is displayed.
2. There should be an easy way to provide a hyperlink to an individual message, (not even getting into purple numbers). I wanted to provide a second response to a message that someone had already responded to, but to also acknowledge that I had read the content of the first responce. However, there is no easy way to provide a hyperlink to an individual message (I think that there might be a hard way by stealing the link from the tree-navigation).
3. I don't know if this is really necessary, but a cancel button when writing a message might be helpful.
Here is my fumbled message: http://otis.open.ac.uk/ubiq/read.php?f=44&i=12&t=3

Peter, I am not (yet) grasping what you mean by "collide threads where their
subject matter collides." As for more to-the-point hyperlinking, I am with you.
The articles in the archive have the :funny purple numbers" notation, which
permits commentators to refer to exact paragraphs.
I am toying with having D3E associated directly with the articles. And Simon
says "yes." But perhaps we should develop a contents page that more neatly fits
in with D3E. Any designers out there willing to put something together? Notice
that the site's organization is encapsulated entirely within the contents page.
This makes changes in the way the sit's contents are organized quite easy.
All in all, remember, Fleabyte is experimental and also that it belongs to the
group I like to call "Friends of Engelbart." Not to me.
