,----[ <f1> v message-citation-line-function RET ]
| message-citation-line-function is a variable defined in `message'.
| Its value is 
| rs-message-insert-formated-citation-line
| Documentation:
| *Function called to insert the "Whomever writes:" line.
| Predefined functions include `message-insert-citation-line' and
| `message-insert-formated-citation-line' (see the variable
| `message-citation-line-format').
| Note that Gnus provides a feature where the reader can click on
| `writes:' to hide the cited text.  If you change this line too much,
| people who read your message will have to change their Gnus
| configuration.  See the variable `gnus-cite-attribution-suffix'.
| You can customize this variable.

`message-insert-formated-citation-line' is new in No Gnus:

,----[ <f1> v message-citation-line-format RET ]
| message-citation-line-format is a variable defined in `message'.
| Its value is 
| "On %a, %b %d %Y, %n wrote:"
| Documentation:
| Format of the "Whomever writes:" line.
| The string is formatted using `format-spec'.  The following
| constructs are replaced:
|   %f   The full From, e.g. "John Doe <john.doe@example.invalid>".
|   %n   The mail address, e.g. "john.doe@example.invalid".
|   %N   The real name if present, e.g.: "John Doe", else fall
|        back to the mail address.
|   %F   The first name if present, e.g.: "John".
|   %L   The last name if present, e.g.: "Doe".
| All other format specifiers are passed to `format-time-string'
| which is called using the date from the article your replying to.
| Extracting the first (%F) and last name (%L) is done
| heuristically, so you should always check it yourself.
| Please also read the note in the documentation of
| `message-citation-line-function'.
| You can customize this variable.

Bye, Reiner.
