Correct on all counts. As it says in the information that you received when you subscribed and in the XSL-List Guidelines that regularly posted to this list: Do not begin your subject line with "help" or "subscribe" since the list software will bounce the message because it looks like is an administrative request. Do not use un-informative subject lines like "Urgent", "Easy question", or "Problem". Instead, use a meaningful subject line that will make sense to the people whose help you are trying to get. It is best to start a new message for a new thread. Do not start a new thread by replying to an unrelated message and just changing the subject line, since the header of your message will contain references to the previous message and your new message will appear in the archive as one of the replies to the original message.
