Hi Peter,

It appears that the documentation covers the proceedure for finding 
friends/users in Gabber and Exodus. These programs, as I understand 
from the Jabber User guide, automatically process the actual Jabber 
username (my MSN username on Jabber for example, is 
liefstryder%hotmail.com at jabber.org.uk) and therefore the users of these 
programs do not need to know this information in order to run the 
programs successfully.

Users of other programs, especially less developed Mac OS X programs, 
need this kind of information as they are using a much more primative 
interface to the server. this is of course, only my opion based on the 
last few days of getting to know Jabber. I hope it is of some use to 

Out of curiousity and a need for clarity; does the Jabber suffix 
(@jabber.org.uk for example) of my cross-protocol (say, Jabber to MSN) 
username depend on the server I am registered with or the one which the 
person trying to find me is connected to.
