Subject RE: AW: What does it mean
Date Fri, 10 Mar 2006 15:09:28 GMT
"Antwort", meaning "answer", used by German speakers the way English speakers write "re:",
which, oddly enough is an abbreviation of a Latin phrase "in re", generally translated as
"in the matter of".

Subject:  AW: What does it mean

I could probably find this out if I looked a lot longer, but what does 
the AW: mean in the subject line.  I have an basic understanding that it 
is supposed to be a more general post, not specific to a certain thread, 
but what does the actual acronym -- if that is what it is-- mean?
