Ah, of course!  I never thought of that (valid) case.  I'll try to
rework it taking into account your other remark too, but I'll have to
read some PHP documentation so it may take a few days (or more).

Meanwhile, if anyone sees an obvious way to do this, I'd appreciate if
he educates me.

OK, although it seems rather odd to me.  If the syntax of PHP is so
liberal, it should warn a poor user like me for things like this.  I
just posted the snippet to the first PHP (possibly unexperienced) guy
on my roster and he said that comparison of strings in this form
should work.  FTR, I trust you much more -- I'm just a bit puzzled.

Sorry, the "history" of the e-mail in the form of top-posting had
always been useless junk to me, and I always like people who strip it.

It is my (humble) understanding of how electronic communication should
work (probably inherited from the telex world).  I tend to quote
minimal context if it is a recent message, more if it is an old (2-3
weeks old) and full if it is an old (3-4 months old).  With a decent
MUA I can always read the parent message, if I have forgotten what
it's all about.

This is just a limitation of Mutt (which I like and I'm using as
well), but not a reason to top-post everything so that the person
replying can copy and yank what's needed easily.  YMMV.

I'll take a note to include more context when communicating with you.
