My point was, that I take every effort to represent command line properly,
but special characters have context dependable meaning. I noted that your
remark is in context of command line, but user prompt in SUSE Linux is the
same character that is marker for quoted text in news.
To overcome this one can use copy of prompt like
user@linux:~> for users, or
linux:~# for root, which will move > further from the begin of the
line and prevent news reader to interpret it as quote. My problem with this
approach is that it means more typing :-) and I'm not sure that
inexperienced linux user will notice the difference.
I used to type hashmark as placeholder for any kind prompt, and remark "run
as root" to denote need for root login.
Years ago it was impossible that you use Linux and don't know the difference
between user and root prompt, but today if you use it to run, for instance,
multimedia applications and hardware doesn't make trouble there is small
chance that you will ever need command line interface.

I know that, but, as explained above, hasmark wasn't meant to denote root
prompt, it is there just as patch, to satisfy my slow fingers :-)
I will appreciate any ideas (or pointers in the web) how to handle this .
