Er... Hello? :-) What do you think I've been doing for the past week or so? :)

Oh, I thought you were doing it with fancy regexps.

No <smile> I was just suggesting better English, but the spacing
went awry - "that" should have been under "who" - "Long entries are
those /that/ contain ...". (You once asked us to do that, IIRC :)

Oh, thanks! I do tend to get confused between these: "the people who",
"the things that", "the things which" (does "which" even work with

Yes, it's fine with plurals.

The last two are both OK, although some maintain that "which"
should only be used to introduce a parenthetical clause: "the things,
which John brought, were ..."  although "that" wouldn't be seriously
wrong here either.  But "who" is a no-no unless the subject is a
real person or maybe an animal that is considered to be almost
a person, like a pet.
