    Can you alter the <!--more--> tag to show wording different to "more...?" ?

    Yeah, I tried this tag, but it didn't work - it just showed the code.

    <?php the_content('Read on...'); ?>

    Was it in a PHP file? That's code that's used on plenty of sites and it's never done that before? Is there a link to the site in question?

    You need to edit the index.php file in your theme directory. Locate that, then locate the line in The Loop that calls the function the_content() and edit that. THAT line is what needs to be edited, not the actual tag that gets inserted into the post editing area.
