That's four keystrokes!
The Mac version (alt+e+e) is three! :D

And don't forget those of us who still haven't quite worked out how to switch on a PC! (Dratted things!) :(

Nope, even a PC should be capable of these basic functions. The code system is only really needed for the more unusual diacritical marks – if, for example, you're setting the Gloria in Czech.

No, the Pax is still there, as it used to be before the Sign of Peace was introduced, just no invitation to spread it around.

Re: Swine flu

Big change in Liverpool archdiocese from today: Diktat from the Arch banning Sign of Peace, water stoops and Communion from the chalice.

Re: Parish music workshop in Liverpool

By way of a bump, still a few places left for latecomers – just warn us if you're bringing a coachload as we'd need a third teapot!
If anyone wishes to join us just for the afternoon – singing the psalms – that begins around 12.45pm.
