All...thanks for your responses. I found the arguments about added cost
in certain parts of the world due to increased connect times and larger
file sizes to be compelling. But I have also come around to appreciate
the other points as well. I remember being irritated at receiving html
emails when I was an "elm" user in the mid 90's...and my initial
response was that this should not be a problem in 2004; however, those
who choose to use command line email readers (or even ascii terminals or
teletypes) should be respected for making that choice. Hey, I remember
using a teletype in the early 80's...they have certain redeeming
qualities, like a hard copy of your session:-)
I'd like to get back to discussing Fedora now...see ya.
