While we are on the topic of formatting, I have huge problems with 
Thunderbird's ability to display the text you are replying to, 
when it originates from a yahoo account. For example, when I 
replied to Ken Morgan's post earlier, I had to override the 
'reply' function just to see what he wrote. I would strongly urge 
comrades to dump yahoo if only for the purpose of making it easier 
to have a dialog.
