1) There's no such thing as "universally intuitive". Intuition is a
question of experience and cultural background.

2) Please stop posting in fixed-format text. It's a pain in the neck to
edit when replying.

3) Please read the list Guidelines (see URL at the end of every posting
to this list) and stop top-posting.

(And on a personal note: the! use! of! excessive! exclamation! marks!
is! extremely! distracting! and! does! not help! communication!).
