To Calvin (and other interested parties), You have included a background in your message. In order to accomplish this, Outlook (which I assume is your email program) uses codes similar to html. This if fine if the READER has Microsoft Internet Explorer, Outlook or Outlook Express. However, if the READER doesn't have those programs then it comes across as gobbledy-gook. On this list (and most other listservers), one must assume that many different readers will be used, hence the default is to send everything in plain text without backgrounds, colorful pictures and the like. (Colorful metaphors may still be used with permission of the list.:) ) TO everyone else, I've noticed that I get a fair amount of emails formatted for HTML and mime. Could we return to sending email in plain text. In Outlook their is a switch in the TOOLS|Options|Mail Format that you can set to "Sent in this message format: Plain Text". There is also a way to set that option based on recipient (in this cast the list) but I forget how to set that. PS: When replying, please chop off the trailer that the listserver adds. It is highly annoying if one is trying to get the digest form. Mark Jones
