The letter seems genuine to us too, typed by a secretary but signed (quickly, in ballpoint) by Tolkien. For what it's worth, we've never seen a secretary-typed letter from Tolkien that he didn't sign personally, except for those clearly marked "p.p." (per procuriationem, by delegation to) with the secretary's name or initials. None of Tolkien's secretaries, as far as we know, ever tried to imitate his signature -- we doubt that he would have approved of the deception. Nor is it likely that Tolkien, who always took special care when writing to children, would not have signed this particular letter himself.

Well, I've noticed an unpleasant change. The edit-window, when it contains more than a certain amount of text, jumps back to (or at least towards) top at anything you do (any button you push, basically).

This is a problem I have found occuring in two phpBB fora on IE 7.x or 8.x (in slightly different manner) under Windows. In one forum I have encountered it in, it has disappeared quickly, in the other it now persists for over a year and seems to be impervious to the admins’ attempts at tracking it down.

I have seen some fan post which was not quit as personal and charming as this one.

This is a typical secretary letter of which I have seen over 200 by now... typed by Tolkien's secretary and also signed by this person. Clear match in autograph as well.
