Hi,
JavaRanch is running now "R in Action" promo.
Since JR doesn't allow to use the letter "R", posters are going to find difficult times during the promo.
I started to use: R-language.
It is just my opinion

R R R R R R R R R R R R R R



Anyone wanting to include a capital R in heir posts this week can use the HTML entity equivalent of R

Or simply enclose it in quotes: "R"

I cannot believe such gross negligence in omitting that capability!
