Let's see, most mailers will tolerate a little bit of stuff like
"http://www.wplug.org but if one starts using "bold" and other specialty stuff
they do barf. Eventually the mailers should be fixed. But right now it is
probably go gently. If one needs a title or emaphasis *APPLIED CRYPTOGRAPHY*
still works. Eudora does OK; Netescape for cerrtain Neoplanet from Lycos, which
crashes all over the place. ANd only a few are being redisgned for HTML and
even more fun its descendednts.

Have Fun,
