Continuing with the hijack, the word "nice" has a long and varied history and its meaning has changed quite a lot over time. It originally meant unaware or ignorant (so Harry Enfield's character "Awfully dim but nice" doesn't really need the "but nice")

Apologies both - for once, I spotted my fat-fingered mistake before the timer on editing posts had run out. Now duly corrected.
