That seems like the best option to me. A conforming C implementation won't care about (apparent) Unicode / ISO 10646 escapes in a comment (ISO 9899:1999 6.4.3 and 6.4.9), but apparently some Java compilers do. Note that many (though not all) Windows applications are happy to use a forward slash instead of a backslash between domain and username anyway, just as most Windows applications other than cmd.exe built-ins are happy to take forward slashes as path separators. So substituting a forward slash in the expansion of the Id (and Author, Header, Locker, and Log) keywords wouldn't be all that odd. -- Michael Wojcik Principal Software Systems Developer, Micro Focus
