There is still a road to go in that: quoting lots of text to add just one or two lines means he has to reread question 3 from http://www.xs4all.nl/~wijnands/nnq/nquote.html, but his posts are better readable than they were at first. Because of the bad layout and style I quit reading many of his early posts before I got to the end.

Now they are easier to read.
