The style has always annoyed me.....

"Now it chanced that in those grim and sorrowful days which came to the court and land of France after the death of Roland and the other noble dukes and brave lords who fell with him in that last great battle against the Saracens, King Charlemagne was driven to think much of the future of his realm."

With an opening line like that. Well it is just to full of extra words and not enough punctuation. Sorry, I won't be re-reading this one.

Can anyone tell us how to pronounce "Huon"?

Is it HU-on?

Is it "Hwan"?

I've always pronounced it like Hugh-on. I tried to go to the ultimate source: Google.

LOL!

Thank you. Never realized that was a real name (or I forgot).
