Several years ago I was ceruleancentaur on Yahoo. When I returned to
Yahoo more recently I couldn't use the name because "it was already
in use"! So I went with the more archaic
spelling "cæruleancentaur." Blue is my favorite color and I was
in the sign of Sagittarius.

I tried to use the a-e ligature using Alt-145, but it wouldn't work.
I'll never understand why ASCII works sometimes and not other times.
So I cut and pasted what you had typed.

Yes, "quaestio" is spelled correctly.
