Maybe it's just me, but it just wasn't parsing, as I said.  <g>

Glad to be of help, even tho that particular help was inadvertent! <g>

Learn something new every day... eh?  If you notice (and you have the
prefs set up to color it differently), your sig should be different
colored now (in the reader, not the composer), because PAN sees what it is
and acts accordingly.

Of course, every once in awhile someone messes up and PAN marks more as
sig than really /is/ sig.  I believe PAN will recognize just --, without
the space, as a sig as well, due to that being the default emitted for
years by MSOE, and that's sometimes used as a logical separation marker,
not a sig delimiter. If they don't have it or a real sig delimiter later
in the text, PAN will see that as the last one and mark everything under
it as sig.

Anyway, glad to see it wasn't PAN doing something strange, but gvim. 
There's gotta be a reason it was doing what it was doing.  If you figure
it out, be sure and post back, as I'd sure like to know what it was!
