	Dear friends,

We are using EMBOSS version 3.0. One of my colleagues tried to use a 
multiple sequence file in fastA format, where each comment line starts 
with a string containing multiple pipe signs. An USA of type
did not work. After some trial I found that putting "pearson" instead of 
"fasta" helped. This is strange, since according to the on-line manual at 
"fasta" and "pearson" are synonyms. Here it seems that "fasta" is instead 
treated the same as "ncbi". Comments ?

	Guy Bottu,
