| The grammatically correct pronoun for third person singular of

*** unknown gender***

| in English is "he"...

Agree - and I really have got english English as my first language ;-)

|-one common compromise is to add a small notice at the bottom stating
| something along the lines of "The use of a particular gender in this
| document is purely for the author's convenience and should not be
| construed as excluding the other."

I'm bored with this - at least can't we just add something like this
somewhere and get on with much more important matters?
