Unless the recipient has the same E-mail application that you have, it
is possible the recipient's application does not handle HTML the same
way your application handles it.  It is also possible that the recipient
has set an option to display E-mail as plain-text.

Last month, I studied a number of HTML-formatted messages I had received
and discovered that they contained an average of 6 HTML syntax errors
per thousand bytes of file-size.  I would suspect that SeaMonkey (using
the same mailnews core as Thunderbird, based on Gecko) might generate
HTML-formatted messages that are close to error-free.  However, a
different E-mail application that creates HTML-formatted messages with
significant HTML syntax errors might also have problems correctly
displaying HTML-formatted messages.

My solution is to create a Web page and upload it to my ISP's Web
server.  Then send a brief E-mail message with a link to that page.

pages.  Would a link to a dropbox folder work as well?

I found that if I installed Cygwin (free) with its command-line email 
program, that "email" can send an HTML file as an HTML email message.

Open HTML file in a text editor or a browser View Source window.  Select 
all the HTML code, choose Copy.


Open an HTML mode compose window.  Choose Insert - HTML.  Paste the HTML 
code.

Why not just forward it as an attachment?


Thanks, but Martin and Mark told me how to do it.

I've looked in Preferences  Mail  Newsgroups and can't find the switch 
to turn off plain text in this one instance.

If you're configured to send in plain text format, then you should
be able to use Shift+Reply (or Shift+Forward as the case may be) to
compose this message in HTML format.

FYI.

I guess there is no comfortable way of achieving this (at least to
my knowledge). You will need to enter the Mail and Newsgroup
Account preferences (not Preferences = Mail  Newsgroups), select
your account there and enable HTML Composing BEFORE hitting reply. 
Then answer the email and set it back afterwards. regards


Martin


uh yeah, Shift+action I always forget about that again. Ignore that
complicated way above ;-)



Mark/Martin... thanks... that worked!
