That last point is very unusual. My wife, who favors the left hand for most purposes including writing (but irons and wields a fork, American-style, with the right hand) has a very distinct right-handed handwriting. OTOH, it's perfectly legible, whereas my left-handed handwriting looks like a 3-year-old's at best. -- Principles. You can't say A is John Cowan <jcowan@...> made of B or vice versa.
