As the originator of the long used Journal format, I must say that I object on all counts.
I created the format of dot notation and spaces between words so that the journal would always render nicely, regardless of the device being used. It would look good in HTML, in an test based terminal, in a browser and in an email.
Yeah, I think it was 10 years ago where i put that format into place. Maybe, just maybe, it makes sense to update date it.
But it always made me smile when I got a journal link and saw the format I started on a whim.
Now there's not more smiles. No more smiles at all.
