TIA = Thanks in advance.

Some people use it a lot, some think it rude. I rarely use it.

Typographers are people whose main avocation is chatting about typography,
especially by e-mail. In their spare time they create new and wonderful
type faces at which non-typographers look with awe.

"Typographers' " is the genitive plural. My Latin primer said "of or
appertaining to whatever".
