    Interesting! I had no idea that IE users were bright enough to write letters. I learn something every day.

    the pronoun I, together with the proper noun Tony, forms the subject of the sentence, so you need to use I rather than me.

    ^ Dunno about them there fancy ways o' talkin', I just fall back on the old reliable method: in your head, say the sentence without the other person at all. Example:

    Is it "Ving and I went to the beach" or "Ving and me went to the beach"? Try it without the other person: "I went to the beach" or "Me went to the beach" ....

    Obviously, it is "I went" so the correct expression is "Ving and I went to the beach". This rule never fails.

    That's the way I do it too Tannin. "That 1.2% must be Tony " and "that 1.2% must be I" This seems completely wrong so obviously "that 1.2% must be me".
    Perhaps I'm not smart enough. I use Firefox.

    It's just an abridged version. The full text runs like this:

    "Tis - IIIIIIiiii Ough bloody hell I hate it when I catch my technicals in the damn armour! - Tis your knight in leather armor come to take thee away on my gallant steed!

    Wrong! You used it at the end of the sentence and, clearly, as the object of the sentence. The subject of your sentence was, in fact, the 1.2%
