  • You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never use "it's" in the wrong context! :-)

  • What's all this long-winded "Programmers seem to ... indicating possession ... conflicts with ..." explanation about? The possessive pronoun "its" is just like all of the other possessive pronouns (except mine.)

    The easy way to remember it is simply: "its" is like "his". Using any more words than that to explain it indicates an inability to focus (as if an off-topic reply on the matter didn't already indicate that.)
