    Reminds me of a ponderous dilemma I had today, how to title a letter written to a member of the aristocracy. The traditional Dear Sir/Madam approach didn't seem quite good enough (ie Dear Mrs Jones.... name changed for anonymity, and to stop me getting sacked).... However Dear Lady Jones sounded a bit, hookerish/dominatrix lines....

    Also got me thinking if it was her husband i'd spoke to, how would I open a letter addressed to a Baron? Telling you, after putting that one in the out tray I almost walked away backwards, bowing every other step

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
