TEXAS COURT RULEs.
17. The clerk shall not make such entry of an attorney's name
until he shall have filed his briefs; but he shall permit any attorney
who desires to make an appearance in the case before he files his
briefs, or without 'filing them at all, to place his name, in his own
handwrIting, upon the trial docket, opposite the name of the party
for whom he appears, and that shall be regarded by the court as having
whatever effect is given to the mere appearance of a party to a
case in court without brief filed.
