I was sent this:

"All these viruses show similarities . We are not working on MAIDS anymore, but rather using another mouse model developed in our laboratory to study HIV-induced disease.

Dr Paul Jolicoeur M.D. PhD."

Isn't it interesting that he said that all these viruses are similar?

It sure is - thanks for sharing this tee.

And also interesting that he's using a mouse-model virus - retrovirus??? - to study HIV-induced disease. Hmmmm I see pairallels with XMRV and XAND-induced disease.

Firefox updated again last night! so I can't edit or use most of the features here. Plus it woke me up at 3 am!!

Anyway, the way I pronounce "œ" is "oh eh"... don't know if that's right or not.

So I would pronounce "Jolicœur" "Joh-lee-coer". I don't know if that is correct or not.

to be completely relevant here, I think his name means handsome heart

Jolicoeur

joli - handsome or pretty
coeur - heart

It's like 'jolly sir' but for an English speaker the 'y' in jolly would be like a soft 'i' (like 'in'). Does that make any sense?
OK, then. jol' li ser

Thanks, Julius (jul' yus) or should it be 3 syllables?

Tell Teej I've been hard at work copying and pasting my o's and e's to make them touch. No successes so far.:confused::confused::confused:

After looking it up I'm pretty sure it's a hard "c" as "cœur" is pronounced with a hard "c" when it means "heart".

I don't know if the rule's the same in French but in Spanish the letter "c" is hard when followed by a, o , u and soft when followed by i, or e.

So it's "ca, co cu" (k sound)

and "ce, ci" (s sound)

Here, Brown-eyed, copy and paste this: Jolicœur

That'll work for ya. :Retro smile:

Hi Brown-eyed Girl,

On a Mac, you hold down the option (alt) key while hitting the letter q key.

Like this: œœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœœ. Whœ! :Retro smile:

On a PC, you can use ANSI Character Codes, if you have a numeric keyboard with a number pad on the right side. Hold down the alt key and type 0156 on the number pad.

A complete list of ANSI and ASCII codes can be found at:

http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~george/ansi_ascii_character_chart.html

Best wishes,
Jrry

Browneyed girl, try going to the Start Menu on the lower left of your screen.

Then select Programs, then Accessories (up at the top) then System Tools, then Character Map.

Use the scroll bar in the Character Map and you can find "" and many other letters and symbols.

All the Jolicoeurs I've known (there are a few in Canada) have used a soft c, but this guy may be a mouton noir. Ya never know.
