Handsomely said, my friend. ;-) My dog will now deign to allow you to approach, offer him a treat, and pat the royal head....while he decides whether to rank you among "favored guests" or just "someone else to bark at".
Interesting point about recognizing the shapes of words, and why that is so much easier with lower case! I'd never thought of that, but it is the key to why it's a lot harder to read stuff that is all caps...it doesn't have peaks and valleys to give it a recognizable overall shape.
