So Belle de Jour is not anonymous any more. I think I read most of her articles until the day she said "I am publishing a book, this blog is over" or something like that. I'm not surprised by the person behind the pseudonym. Belle is using a very rich English and I often had to use a dictionary or help to fully understand not only her words but sometimes even her grammar. I mailed her once because of a CSS problem on her blog, and her answer - in a private and spontaneous email - showed first minimal knowledge of yiddish, then more than minimal knowledge of computer science.

Belle, if you ever read this, "Être" is always better than "Paraître" and I am 100% sure you understood the linguistic subtlety here. Good luck.
