Excellent. Thanks! I'm glad I could help. Been using ed more and more for the 
last year or so. I'm glad to see it is still maintained. 

So 1.15 is officially released? The archives only show through Oct. 2018, and 
the last posts there are about 1.15-pre2, which I assume is/was not a final 
release. Related, the archive says it refreshes every 30 minutes, but I don't 
see any of today's conversation (nor anything since Oct 2018). Should the 
auto-refresh have caught and posted this conversation?

Unrelated side note: the mailing list rules state that only text emails (no 
HTML) should be used, so I've been doing that (forcing text format). The 
replies I've been getting have been HTML emails. Is that rule no longer 
applicable? If so, that'll save me the trouble of making sure I'm sending 
text-only message, but also means that the rules should probably be updated.

Thanks again!
