Graphical Representation of Forwarded Notes

      This article describes a graphical method for displaying a
chain of forwarded notes.  This allows a user to easily tell what the
flow of the note has been and who has seen it along the way.

      The following figure will help to illustrate the method that a
chain of forwarded notes would be displayed:

      With this graphical method of display, a user can look at a
note in the middle of the chain or look at the note that is the
final note at the end of the chain.  A user can also go to the
last note in the chain and forward just it rather than the entire
chain.
