    Novell Acquires SiteScape

    However, the creator & proofreader of this announcement must not have a
    working space bar on their keyboards.

    Words like "strategyand", "Conferencingthis" and "conferencingone" sure
    are interesting, but have no place in a Press Release.

    This looks like something that comes from Enrish.com.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that spotted that. At first I thought
    maybe it was an html thing squishing it together so I copied and pasted
    it to check.. Nope..

    In a twist if irony, I misspelled Engrish.com in my original post.

    No HTML squishing...probably tight deadlines where proofreading went out the
    window.

    The text version which I read on my Treo looked fine.

    Without looking, I'm guessing that whatever copy-and-paste was used didn't
    convert strings like "strategy[CR][LF]and" into "strategy and".

    Well in Kmail the oddities
    you are describing show up like

    strategy--and
    Conferencing--this
    conferencing--one

    Funny thing is, I can't believe you read it.
    Novell makes the most boring acquisitions.
    Now if they'd have said Novell buys Yahoo!,
    now there's a headliner.

    ....or marketspeak. Gotta love the new works the marketing people come up
    with. I bet they come up with more new words daily than the IT industry does
    acronyms.
