you don't like Javascript? Then use the decafe version link at the top
of the page. Dumb thing the web page industry, making up foolish things
like colored text and all....

Show me this. Give me an example. You see I have done this before, even
getting it down to 20 words or less for those who wanted it that way.
Guess what? They then complained it did describe enough.

But show me this.

Is there something you fail to understand why I picked autocoding as a
target of how this tool can be used?

Then there is the other problem, getting others to understand how to use
it so that the power of many can be moved into action in order to generate
the sum benefits everyone gets to play in.

Chicken or egg.......

You do know the concept of zero, '0', nothing having a value, had been an
established concept of the hindu long before it was included with the
arabic nine digits. And the final ten digit numbering system took
something like 300 years to adopt by the majority into common use, over
the far more limited roman numeral system.
