    Come on Geoff, we fully understand that a question mark is a punctuation and certainty not an apostrophe.

    Sorry Trevor, I haven't the faintest idea what you're talking about. I was referring to your misplaced apostrophe.

    Er, I've never written anything for the Fellrunner. Are you referring to proof-reading? If so, I don't get to read everything (in fact nothing at all in Fellrunner 124!)

    It was the proof-reading I was poking a little fun at... I accept your excuse!

    I'm writing lecture notes on vector calculus at the moment. The apostrophe always goes at the end: Gauss' Theorem, Stokes' Theorem.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.
