Hi all,

Is it not about time for this mailing list to come in to the
21th century? This is the ONLY email list that I have to turn
off HTML formatting to send a post to. Everytime I forget it I
get this:
Depending on which emailer you're using, you ought to store that
as a
preference of the email-address (of the list). Thunderbird has
such an option.
So far you're the only one to give a real answer to this, thanks
for that. Do you know if kmail has this option? I've not been
able to find it. But this still bring us back to the first
question. Why does this list not keep up with the times. Ten
years ago, when almost no one had anything faster than 56k then
it was understandable. But now even someone one out in the middle
of no where Germany has at least DSL 2000 so this rule is silly.
I'm on over 60 lists and am the owner of 4. This is the only list
I have this problem with.

I disagree. I could care less about pretty. That's all that HTML
brings to the stage.
We're going OT, but HTML does allow a lot more than just being
pretty. Sometimes presentation does matter, also in email.

I've yet to see ANYTHING written on this list which would be better
presented in HTML as opposed to plain-text displayed in a monospace
I agree. I wasn't arguing that HTML would have any use on a mailing

Then what were you arguing in favour of?

I was arguing against the _general_ suggestion that "HTML is only about
being pretty". Presentation matters - it is about being _effective_.

Posts to this mail list, or any other mailing list, are e-mails.

If we'd stuck to that limited topic, Carlos very succinctly finished off
the thread long ago - "there is no HTML allowed on this list, end of
story". (I think it was Carlos).
