Ahh, old-topics and new-topics appear in email messages which have a reply
that starts a new thread. Here's an example:

Depending on the settings, this may appear in the upper-left corner of the
main page.

This is an error message. I am glad you didn't see it. =)

When there is an archived list with a language unknown to lurker it says in
the drop down:
xx - missing in lang.xml

> | offline=" (viesti puuttuu)"

If a mailing list is not available on the web-site, but a link from the main
page is provided to the other site, this appears beside the name.
Perhaps (offsite) would be more accurate in english too.


# Debian-GCC — blah blah
# Debian-Glibc (offline) — blah blah

If a message has been removed from the archive, but appears still in the
thread tree, this is popup text shown when the mouse is hovered over the

If an email has no From information at all, this is used for the author

If an email has been deleted, but appears in a list context somewhere (very
rare), this is used for the author name.

This appears in two places on the page
The next and previous links in the upper-right corner 'name" at "date'
Hover the mouse of the graphic of the messages.

At the moment, yes.
If I use them somewhere else I will add another string; thanks for the tip.

I will have to add a new field for this.
It also will require me to make the day and year drop-downs different.

I've put it online now.

I had to change the encoding from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8.
Was ISO-8859-1 correct?

I've attached the version I put online.

Would it be alright with you if I included your name and email address in
the lurker AUTHORS file?

PS. Is Soumi spelled correctly?
