Why is HTML 'okay' in RSS but not in email or news? I view everything in
HTML (always have) and have no problems.
Do you see then the ^^^^ exactly under the 'okay'? ;)
Well, i do. But in HTML messages i doubt it.
I use SeaMonkey 1.1.16, and a Mac, with OS 10.5.7.
I have my View/ Message Body As/ Original HTML, and in neither message
was the ^^^^ directly under the word "only."
In Harmut's [hour] 1204 and 1206 messages of today, the carets are under
the word 'is' and the first two letters of HTML.
I see that in this automatically quoted message (above) it is almost
under 'okay' but shifted to the left one space.
For those who wonder why, it'ss because the next line that contains only
the 4 carets only has two 'greater than' symbols to lead the line off.
The previous line has three, and the next line has three, but for some
reason the caret line only has two.
It's almost impossible to get letters and characters on two successive
lines (or more) to match up, one above the other.
Recall how when many folks make simple 'images' from ascii text, and
expect them to come out visually correct. Far and away the majority of
the time they show up with one or more lines shifted with respect to the
It's pretty much a losing game.
