    A lot of possibilities, but only the killer knows for sure.

    I wonder about the internet provider sbtc. Not sure if that is the correct term....but you see sbtc on email messages. I do think it was suppose to represent a noun...what it is, is anyone's guess.

    Well, I haven't stumbled upon any four word french proverbs, (but there's some good ones!) as of yet. SBTC, not a common grouping.

    Also, no match to any french online chat acronymes
    http://www.arobase.org/rediger/acronymes.htm

    The arrangement of letters, SBTC, has a greater occurance in the english language.

    It's funny you mention the reverse, CTBS, because I heard that the cops found an open Bible with CTBS in it...
    I'm as mad as HELL and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!.

    I found these on yahoo.fr;
    www.sbtc.fr termite and wood treatments from Jambles in france
    sbtc.sport.fr - beach tennis on la Reunion
    www.sbtc.ch - a portail for Swiss bank services
    www.sbtc.ca - vancouver based Co promoting ecological innovations with links to the Emirates.
    A note on the use of acronyms in france, no capitals and no full stops/ periods in between letters. Also in internet speak they usually just shorten words eg bjr = bonjour.

    TY anne.

    (I've been slowly working my way through a list of Saints, and I realized that saint Jean Babtiste, he's one of my favorites!)

    Ya, grammar... so not my strong point. Never use it in real life.

    But there is that difference in application between cultures. I was trying to remember all those rules, ha.

    http://books.google.ca/books?id=0c5KxdPJHvgC&pg=PT246&lpg=PT246&dq=french +grammar+mme+rules+abbreviations&source=bl&ots=e_q oc88CAB&sig=1WusWEddkbiA-h-uC_qCIfMVvsY&hl=en&ei=w8XrSb1Xjsoy3tDx8QU&sa=X&oi= book_result&ct=result&resnum=3

    Like...

    Mr.
    Mrs.

    rn [Mr. Ramsey,]



    fr M. (point)
    Mme

    fr [ M. Ramsey] no comma





    periods vs commas

    *fr two part all punctuation marks and symbols with two or more parts must ! ? % $ # must be preceeded by a space.


    Ca va ?
    Tres bien !

    Victory! vs Victoire !

    rn [carefully!]
    [John!]
    [Victory, appears with spacing]


    *fr/eng

    the period is used in some parts of Canada to separate, rather than the comma that is used in English: 10.500 -- 10,500
    In France, however a space is used in replace of an Englisn comma to separate thousands eng 123,456 would become 123 456


    • Currency symbols should be placed after the amount and preceded by a non-breaking space.
    English example:USD50


    French example:50 USD

    • Use a space for thousand separators and a comma for decimal separators.
    English example: USD 2000.50


    French example:2 000,50 USD


    $118,000.00 vs 118 000
    $118,000,00 vs 118 000 USD

    rn [$118,000.00
    $100,000
    $18,000

    $500
    $100]
