Kristian,

Please change the subject line so that people can follow what you are actually responding to. Also remember to give your surname with your message.

I realised after I sent my last message that I was not clear enough. I should have said that Ugaritic literature treats El as a proper noun, and this same thing is confirmed in the biblical text when you often find El written without an article.
