Dear Jeff Kingston,

Thanks for your answer.

I suppose i'll have to change my habits, and type

An address@hidden C}}(or address@hidden) compiler

instead of

An @I{Ansi C}(or @I{C++}) compiler

However, i think that your explanation:

     Lout's parsing is based on precedence, and the precedence of
    juxtaposing two objects together is larger than the precedence of
    any symbol.  So
            In order to @I { emphasise }, one uses italics
    is parsed as
            In order to @I {{ emphasise },} one uses italics
should be put in Lout's documentation.

If it were only my preferences, i would better like to have to type


instead of

        @I over-compensated
        @Ref kingston88

and still be able to type:

        An @I{Ansi C}(or @I{C++}) compiler

But i understand your (implementor) choices are different.

Thanks again for Lout and your explanation. If & when you have time, please
add it into the documentation.
