This is because Ken used some dtml tags in his email, to explains some
details, a common thing to do on a list that discusses the system that uses
DTML the most. Some email clients, and the eGroups archiver as well,
immediatly assume the email contains HTML and try and render it as such. This
is a bug in these email clients and eGroups.
