I say, "HTML mail is OK."

I say, ban all HTML in e-mail messages.

Everyone who agrees, raise your arm. Everyone who disagrees, raise both arms. Then count and enforce the result... ;-)


I send and receive lots of e-mails which contain equations. I just prepare them using any equation editor and paste them as pictures in my HTML e-mail. So I raise my both hands ;)

Note that you can send images without using HTML. Just make references to the attached images if necessary. There are also document formats you can use for this that will serve your content better.

While we are at it, let me ask, why in plain text messages several spaces (&nbsp;) are displayed as one? When I send letter as plain text my signature screws up, displaying not DNA there at all.

I should mention that signature is HTML file, which I attach in Thunderbird as my signature?

See, HTML is evil.

Read this, then correct your "signature":

I see you guys don't have such a problems with it, so what is the good way of creating "ordered" signature?

Pure text.

E-mail is for messages.
