That sounds excellent news.  One of my bug-bears with The Bat! was the way 
that it sometimes failed to render an HTML email in a sufficiently readable 
way when the sender was cavalier with the sizes of the images they supplied 
and slack with the HTML code they used to define their output/display.

I hope that this fix has also been replicated into the way emails are then 
printed.  Even if the Windows OS HTML Viewer rendering option is chosen the 
printing rendering reverts back to that of The Bat! HTML Viewer rendering.

I'll now put in for an Upgrade licence fron v6.x to v7.x.
