VI.	Legalese

	8/18/99 V 1.0 The first and probably only version of this file, unless
someone reveals a heretofore unknown secret option or the formatting sucks a 
whole lot.

	The reason I decided to write this list up is that while working on a
create-a-wrestler character, I realized just how cryptic the names of a lot of
the taunt poses really are.  I mean, "Hello Ladies" is pretty obvious, but 
"Here I Am?" "That's What They Say?"  What ARE those?  And since most people
don't want to load a character, set his taunt, save, go look in a match, go 
back and change, etc., all the way down the line.  Add to that the fact that
some characters' taunts aren't available unless you choose their moveset as
a whole, meaning if you want that taunt you have to do it *first* and *then*
change the other moves, it can be a total pain.  So, since none of the move
lists seem to include poses at all since they're all the same button combo, 
I thought I'd find them all and post them as a timesaver for others.  Hope
it comes in handy.
	A note on formatting:  I haven't used a plain text editor in years.
I *always* use Word or Wordperfect.  But for easy distribution this needs to
be a plain .txt file, so I'm trying to count columns and hoping I didn't
mess it up.  If it looks bad on a browser, I'll update it.

	A "common" taunt is described as one readily available from the Pose 
list in create-a-wrestler.  I'll give the name, the size, a description, and
if applicable a list of the wrestlers who use it.

A. "AS YOU WISH" (1%) A standard martial-arts style bow. (Steve Blackman)
Note: This is the 'default' pose, but is not on the main list.

	"Hidden" is a misnomer as they're in plain view, but they don't show up
on the Pose list in CAW.  You have to select the wrestler that does the move's
full movelist, and then edit the rest of the list.  I'll give name, wrestler,
size and description.
