>BTW: Jan, your name comes up often in CP conversation around here.

Nil nisi bene, I hope. ;-)

>Do you pronounce it like "yawn" with a soft "j",

Yes, as far as the "J" is concerned, it is pronounced like the "y" in "yes".
The "a" is not so easy to describe because there are no uniform
pronounciation rules for the English language (and I can not send phonetic
symbols via email):

> or like in a way that rhymes with "pan"?

Rather like the "u" in (the most common version of) "fun".

But feel free to pronounce my name just as you like.

Kind regards

PS: I am currently preparing to send you an updated version of the
aforementioned list. Do you want me to use another format (I do not know if
I can provide such, but I could at least try)?
