George and all:
The little symbols some of you may see (*#^?) are due to my having written
my responses in RTF or rich text format -- some computers apparently can't
read RTF so I will try to remember to revert to old school e-mail for now.
=) But should I send something in the future and you see those symbols,
that's what's going on. I thought most machines out there could accomodate it.
one particular aspect that screws up *all* fancy formatting is the Dinosaur
Digest, as listproc simply takes the literal file supplied for each e-mail
an concatenates them into one long file, e-mail headers, text, formatting
Most e-mail programs then take the Digest as a single large plain-text
e-mail, as they have no reason to do otherwise...
(We often get to see the insides of binary files, and raw HTML codes from
those who use HTML format)
