<div>There was a considerable string on this question in April of
1988 (April 14-22), and unfortunately that falls within one of a
couple sizable lacunae in our on-line archives. I can probably supply
the thread as a long text-file to you, Kevin. One of the intriguing

OINOS was used of unfermented grape juice, a proposition of which
some may have been persuaded.</div>
